Hi,
You should be able to do this in System Prefs/Energy Saver/

This is how it looks in Mountain Lion

Just disable sleep and have it shut down at a specified interval.

Trying to shut it down during sleep is going to be difficult (likely impossible) as the processor is essentially turned off, control is turned over to the SMC and there's just enough power used to keep the content of memory alive.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

That's a good call.
