[ automatically run every night let us say at 11:45 p.m.]

If you switch your computer off it will not run any scans.

Now if you run AVG you can get that to Power down the computer after the scan has finished.

If you mean Spybot Search & Destroy then you can do it by means of the Advanced menu - this shows you how:

Sea Urchin's click here shows you how to set the scheduled scan in Spybot if that was the program that you were referring to.
AVG is an Anti-Virus program so you obviously do not use it and already have an A/Virus program installed.So my Information on how to run it to power down the computer after a scan will be of no use to you.
