I believe the answer would be a Windows service with a timer control  which would activate the DB process that you want to start after the pre-defined time..

Write the code that you want to run in the Timer_elapsed function ..this would solve your problem..
You'll have a process running in the form of a windows service which would run the desired process as and when the time elapses in the timer object..

Use the "Taks Scheduler" which you can find in the Control Panel or Windows folder. It's also used internally by windows for SqlServer Jobs, Backup and so on.
