Question: would it be possible to create a cron job on the AiMesh node to either shutdown the node or put in into some sort of sleep / low-power mode at 1AM daily. Then sent a wake-on-lan package (via scheduled cron job on the main router) at around 7AM to fire up the specific AiMesh node again?

I've already found out that I can 'halt' the router.

Router model: RT-AC68U

With no USB devices attached to it, just buy a timer plug instead for what you want to do.
