    There's a shutdown command, too.

    Re: turn off the internet

    Here's an idea: Instead of looking to disconnect from the internet, you could just stop the whole computer. You could make a hidden application that only comes up between certain hours, like 12-6, and that app could go fullscreen and won't close unless a correct password is entered.

    The Date and Time object would work, you could compare the hours to less than like 6, so he couldnt get on between midnight and 6.

    Also, the shutdown would work because if it was powered on again, it would shut down again.

    He may work out the system and change the time on his computer before shutdown time. You could try getting the time online every 1min or so using some crazy object and then Do the above system.

    There are loads of ways you could do it. None of them are terribly secure.

    Oh and if the child is not that young you could let him play it out until he starts feeling sick of the computer. Of course there is the risk that he may turn into a big fat loser. However, too much parenting can be just as bad as not enough

    Eventually, he's going to learn that staying up until 4AM results in either the need to consume excessive amounts of coffee or falling asleep, and he'll stop doing so of his own accord.

    Unless, of course, he's stupid. Like me.

    Re: turn off the internet

    Some people are naturally night people. Since I was 13 I have found myself more alert in the night hours, for year and years I fought against it and forced myself to sleep "normal" hours...

    In the end this just made my life a misery and I let my body do the talking now. When I am tired I will sleep regardless of the hour...

    Talk to your son find out what makes him stay up so late? Maybe there's a more tactile solution rather than technology trying to force him to be a day person...

    Re: turn off the internet

    I've been running a router and my modem on a power timer for a year without any problems. Only a tenner at BnQ and it's lowered my power consumption by a third. The PC turns off too when it's not in use. Automation... It's the future

    If you must do something with the Computer you can use NETSH to load and save pre-defined network configurations in XP. One for a wrong IP config and the other for the right one.

    I'm a lot like that, you might say I'm semi-nocturnal.
