Chris,

Maybe you could write a script for your terminal emulator, such as Client
Access, i.e. wait until the appropriate time, sign on, TFRCTL to controlling
subsystem, do a GO SAVE, opt 21, etc, etc, etc. With some timers in there or
preferably error checking (depending on what the emulator allows) to make it
reliable.

Not really, as the full system save runs in restricted state.  

Some 3rd party backup products (Robot/Save is the one that comes to mind)
provides support to schedule a full system save.  I think you have to run a
backup agent on your console and it checks the time and takes the system
into restricted state prior to trying to run a full system save.
