There are ways to do this, but it depends on the OS.
I think that works in 9x; not sure if it works in XP.
You'd create a Timer/TimerTask, perhaps using gregorian calendars to check the current time, or just calculate out the duration and have it run once. Check out Runtime.exec()... it's what you'll need to use to run the actual command.
