The easy and cheap way to accomplish something like that is to put a timer
between the machine's power supply and the power outlet, and use a script
started at boot to switch the machine off in a controlled fashion after a
specified time before the timer runs out.

The only inflexibility in this scheme is that timers usually require a time=
switch on and a time to switch off. So if you need the time that the machine
is "awake" variable, it won't be as easy.=20
