    How set timer force sleep no matter what

    At bedtime, I put on some earphones connected by a long wire to my laptop and listen to audio.

    I'd like the laptop to force go to sleep no matter what within say 25 minutes. Hopefully by then I will be asleep and don't want to move.

    How do you do this?

    Can it also be done on windows 7?
