Put a timer in the form and check the time at regular interval. Is this what you want?

Add a timer to the form....set the Imterval to whatever valuie you want  1000 = 1sec
In OnTimer() add this code...
procedure TFOrm1.TimerTimer1....
var
  MyTime : TDateTime;
begin
  MyTime := StrToTime('3:00am');
  if Time >= MyTime then
  begin
    //Do you stuff here....it's already 3:00am...
  end;
end;

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Here is the full procedure.......

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
var
  MyTime : TDateTime;
begin
  MyTime := StrToTime('3:00am');
  if (Time >= MyTime) and (DayOfWeek(Date) = 2) then//Sunday = 1, Monday = 2
  begin
    timer1.enabled := false;
    ShowMessage('Hello there, it''s 3:00am');
  end;
end;

WaitForSingleObject is *theorically* better :

Case WaitForSingleObject(Application.Handle, (DateTimeReActivation - Now) * 86400 * 1000) Of
//WAIT_ABANDONED:
//WAIT_OBJECT_0      :
WAIT_TIMEOUT:
  {Action}
End;
