    Preventing windows from starting before a certain time.


    Hey there,

    So I'm just messing around with some configurations, at the moment with the aim of increasing productivity on my Win 8 laptop. I just scheduled a shutdown task, to be run every night and in the process I was wondering if there's anyway to prevent either:

    Your computer from starting before a certain time or the operating system from loging you in before a certain time.

    As an example, say I wanted to limit access to my computer before 9am how could you go about this?

    Hello.

    If you're using Windows 8 you can add a Child account and then use Family Safety to manage different settings of that account (I think there is a setting to manage time limits as well) --> Turn on Family Safety - Windows Help

    Best regards.
