Net::Daemon or Chapter 17, recipe 17.15 in The Perl Cookbook. If you're on a Win32 box, I think there's a Win32::Daemon as well.

You would have the program sit there and wait for a certain time or time interval, then do it's thing. A quick Super Search on 'daemon' or 'cron' will give you lots of other options.
