If you have WCS / NCS, you could push a template to the controllers. Not sure about the HP swicthes, I have limited experience with those. On Cisco you can you do a time ACL.

no option on wlc. you can achieve this however if you have WCS or NCS.

There is not an option from the wlc. You can maybe use a pdu to power off the wlc on a schedule. I know some switches support shutting PoE ports if you want.

What about a "time" ACL on your swicths to do a SHUT to your APs.
