The scenario advanced properties screen has scheduling. Alternatively you can schedule a run outside of Neoload using windows scheduler or a CI tool like Jenkins and the appropriate Neoload command line

I have tried Advanced options in scenarios and it works fine. However, i have a doubt here. Should my laptop and the neoload tool should be up and running during this time?

Because, i would require to run the tests at mid night. So was wondering if it works if the laptop is shutdown?

No, if the machine is switched off, nothing would happen, it would need to be on and Neoload running for the inbuilt scheduler to function. For out of hours testing, customers would use a server that is always on and a CI tool like Jenkins (or some scheduler on the OS)
