Can I set a sensor run at a fixed time everyday not a fixed interval? Like 5:00 AM everyday.

This can be done by adding a new interval under <your-prtg>/systemsetup.htm?tabid=2 in the "Scanning Interval" section. Simply add the following line:

@ UTC hh:mm

If you need multiple execution times, comma separate them:
@ UTC hh:mm, hh:mm,

Note that time time is always in UTC, so make sure to enter the time accordingly.
