The facility within BOINC to do that is set at the project's end - GPUGrid is one of mine that uses it.

If a user wants to mimic the behaviour, they normally write an operating system script that calls the boinccmd utility.

An alternative (and the one I use at WCG/OPN) is to open a command window on the boinccmd folder, and run a circular script with an embedded wait command. No need for the task scheduler.

No, I didn't write it: one was posted on the project forum, and I tweaked it a bit until I was happy with it.
