If you look in your system BIOS there should be the option to power on by "RTC", simply set the time and it should fire up automatically each day.

If your PC supports wake-on-RTC you can create a Windows scheduled task which does something innocuous like cmd.exe /c exit (which will briefly flash up a command prompt) and in the Settings tab check "Wake the computer to run this task".
