Schedule an unattended SQL profiler 2008 Trace

Hi,
I need to trace server performance. I wish to enable an unattended trace at night.
The trace should start at say 10pm and must end by 2 am.

I won't get many attempts to do this. I have seen  methods on google and wish to know the one you have used and worked under SQL 2008.

Thanks
