How to periodically copy a web page while my computer is off?

Hello, everybody! I am a newbie, so my question will probably sound
silly to you. I have one task that I don't know how to carry out - I need
to check one web page from time to time (preferably every 20
minutes) and record (=copy) its HTML code every time (the HTML
code of the page is allowed for copying) .

The problem is I can't keep my computer turned on all the time; plus,
I need to leave for work everyday. So, I guess, it should be some kind
of script that I could have run round the clock on some remote
windows server, right?

Do you have any idea how I could do it or what I should start with?
