Look at the TIME function, or the Unix SLEEP command.

While this is possible, why do you want to do this?

What resources to you intend to permanently exclude from other use?

Have you talked with your scheduling people to determine if what you want might be accomplished simply scheduling the process to provide whatever "notify" you want?
Hope this helps,
