Follow these steps:

Install PowerShell,
Then add the Hyper-V Powershell Library.

Then use the commands Start-VM, Stop-VM, Suspend-VM, and Shutdown-VM and etc to do as you wish.

You can use Scheduled Tasks to launch PS scripts. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee176949.aspx#EBAA for how to launch powershell scripts from command line

Or you can use the CLI command 'at'
