Is it possible to create a script that will put my PC to sleep at certain hour and wake up at certain hour and configure "task scheduler" that will run this script? I just want to have this done automatically in stead of manually.  If snot, are there any other option to have this accomplished ?

Yes.  I just did a quick search on this.
Create a Scheduled Task, set it to run whether user is logged in or not.  Select 'Wake the computer to run this task'.  In the Specify Action, in the example I saw simply specify cmd.exe to open a command window and add an argument to immediately close the command window.

Do a web search for "windows 7 task scheduler task wake".  In the example I viewed there was a link to create a task to put the computer to sleep as well.
