How to write a script to shutdown and turn on a workstation on a time schedule?
I want a script that turns off a group of workstations at night and then turns them back on. I want to set this up on a schedule. For example, I want a group of workstations to shutdown at 7:00pm and turn back on at 2:00am.

You can't have a script power on a computer, but you can have it shutdown. My KBox came with an example script for doing this but if yours doesn't then you can just call the shutdown -s command and schedule it for the given time.
To power on systems you can set those settings in the BIOS (like SMal.tmcc suggests). If your systems are configured for Wake on LAN then you can schedule a WOL event in Distribution, Wake-On-LAN, Choose Action, New, Advanced.
