I was wondering if Windows 7 had a way to configure different power management options for certain days of the week?

Not directly but you could create different profiles (Control Panel > System and Security > Power Options > Create Power plan) and use the task scheduler (Win+R taskschd.msc) to launch the powercfg command:

powerfcfg -S "name of your power plan"

(powercfg -L in a command prompt to list all profiles)

An alternative might be the power management utility Granola - it allows scheduling CPU power usage by the hour and day, which may be useful.

Can you add a link and a short explanation of how that works, maybe? –  slhck Nov 3 '11 at 11:49
