assuming that is 8:00 a.m., you should get your downloads going and then pull up a terminal and do:
shutdown 08:00 -h
this will send a message to all users that the system will shut down for maintenance in xx hours and xx minutes.
it will also announce the event every minute until 8am.

you can now close the terminal.

to cancel shutdown after initiating it, do:
shutdown -c

for more info, see http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l...l8_shutdow.htm
