    It appears to me you suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The solution is simple - get hooked on something else.

    At one stage I wrote a batch file which would forcibly shut down Windows every 2 minutes after a specified time to stop family members using the computer too late at night. Worked a treat.

    I had this problem when working from home...would sit on the computer all day..and all night working much to my partners annoyance.

    When I moved into an office however, I took the good computer with me and left a pile of crap laptop at home...this thing was so crap you would only use it if you really had to.

    Needless to say, problem solved.

    How about just plugging into a simple time clock. Not the perfect answer I know but if your mains socket is as difficult to get to as mine is then it could be the answer. Problem is you would be stuck with the same settings.
