Computer Time Lock

Teenagers are playing computer excessively at night. Is there a way to set the computer clock to have the computer shutdown during certain times, for example, 10:00 pm to 6:00 am? I would like shutoff to be changed by me alone, not a situation where the kids will know how to turn it back on during the hours I want them to be off.

Hi

im not sure if there is a non physical way to stopping people from turning on PC, unless you cut the power?? but as for automated shut down visit the sites below:
