For fine grained tasks, use crontab, as said, "man 5 crontab". It's a simple man page and there are easy to understand examples.

Hello again. WHen I use crintab, I have to put the files with the commands only in /usr/bin folder?
How I have to create that file? Just create a new file without extension and put in the commmand?

You can have custom scripts wherever you want. Just for the sake of maintaining the system clean I'd suggest using /usr/local/bin, so your custom scripts doesn't get mixed with the system ones. The extension is not important, but you need to chmod them adequately (+x) so they become executable.
