Hello Thanks for your Question
Simvastatin is one of important cholesterol lowering medication and usually it is recommended to be taken in evening, but in a number of patients taking it, sleep dysfunction is a problem. It usually disrupts sleep cycle to some extent which may lead to irritability.
Clonazepam is a very nice drug to relieve anxiety and to induce hypnosis, so it can be taken in evening after meals.
Aspirin is a drug of group NSAID and there is no major issue in taking Aspirin with clonazepam with in 1 hour time frame. So its safe to take.
