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;

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;
