can anyone recommend a program to start downloads at a specific time or shut itself down at a specific time? (when Peak download times begin!!!)

As far as i can remember, having not used the program for a while, Speed Download can do this, and is a pretty nice program altogether.

in my opinion, wget (http://www.appletalk.com.au/articles/index.php?article=5189) is the best. It runs in the shell.

If you're afraid of the shell (as i was for a while), you can use Deep Vaccuum (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/12760) - a GUI front end of wget. (you still need to install wget though).
