It is the same story with all of us, whenever we start working on the computer or socialize on internet, we tend to forget the time and gets so much busy in the work that we forget that we have passed the time to sleep. Whether for work or for entertainment, we tend to forget the time and keep working on the computer which is not good for health.
The situation is worse for those who have their children staying up late at night because of their personal systems. To rescue this situation, we have got a tool called Bedtime Help. This tool ensures that we log off from the machine at the time we wish to so that we get sufficient time for the sleep.
Bedtime Help allows us to set reminders for the bedtime and in case these reminders are ignored then it can lock the system, hibernate or even shutdown it. Using this tool is very easy, you just need to download the tool from the link mentioned at the bottom of the post, install it and set the options as per your need.
The Scheduling section in the tool helps to schedule the tool for the bedtime and also helps in setting the reminders frequency and start time. There is a Reminder section which lets you set how would you like to set the reminder pop ups. You can make the reminder appear in a window or in a full screen with a custom message.
The Automatic Suspend section of the tool helps you to choose the action to be performed when the reminders are ignored and the set time is exceeded. It can be used to shutdown, hibernate or lock the system. For your geeky little one, the tool can disable the task manager so that your child is unable to terminate the process from the task manager. This can be set from the Addict mode of the tool.
The tool can be used in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
