Sure!

If I understand your question correctly, reboot yes, shutdown then
powerup by itself *Don't know :( *

You can setup a crontab (as root user or with setuid ),

something like
30 09 * * * /sbin/init 6 > /dev/null;

would reboot the machine at 9:30 am.  But if you mean shut it down and
then restart it automatically, I don't know for sure if it can be
done?

Regards,

Antonio
