How to change time of cron.daily?

I’ve scoured different Linux forums for the answer to this onequestion. One of many answers is that this can’t/shouldn’t be done, because this crontab is to be executed after a computer has been booted and not at a specific time.

But what if I keep my computer on 24/7, and the time of cron.daily disturbs my work because disk intensive task are run at inconvenient times, instead of when I’m not in front of the computer. For me, the important thing is that cron.daily is executed once a day, and not x minutes after booting.
