OSX night runs

Hey, I am starting to get used to my new g5 1.8dp, finally. I wondered if any one can tel me what programs run at night (ie permissions, etc), daily, weekly and monthly and what days they run. I saw something that mentioned 3:15am, 4:15am and 5:15am, but could be wrong.

Thanks,
Brian H
