[1]It’s 4 in the afternoon, and you sit down at the computer. You browse dotTech for a bit, then visit Twitter for all of the latest breaking news updates. Unbeknownst to you, it’s actually 2 in the morning now, and you’re going to–look again! Nine in the morning, and you’re late to work. If only your computer could warn you that it’s bedtime–or even automatically shut it down. Now, with Bedtime Help, it can.

Bedtime Help is quite customizable. You start off by setting a bedtime–any time of the day is alright. You can have it show regular reminders for multiple hours before bedtime, giving you plenty of time and no excuses when your bedtime comes. These reminders can contain text, and be either fullscreen or windowed.

Once bedtime comes, something has to happen. That’s when the Automatic Suspension feature comes in. While it is possible to have Bedtime Help do nothing, you can also make it automatically shut down, log off, or hibernate your computer when the clock reaches zero. If you’re your kid is really addicted to the computer, you can even make Bedtime Help disable Task Manager and offer no possibility to abort during the waiting period.

If you’re addicted to your computer, Bedtime Help is a must-have. With any luck, it’ll get you or your kid off of the computer at a reasonable hour without a chance of mercy. It’s free, and is available now–so download it today.
