controlling service schedule

Does anyone know of a hack or other mechanism I can use to control exactly
when a service runs?  I have a couple of costly tests that I would like to
run only during the night, and preferably on a specific schedule.  I know
how to use cron to override on a schedule, but this doesn't prevent
execution.  I have considered doing a check-now via a cron, but in order
for this to work I would need to prevent the service from running on any
schedule.  Is this possible?  Any other ideas?
