Windows 7: Computer Usage Timer

Computer Usage Timer

I want to limit my younger sister's time in front of the computer.

Is there an application or whatever that I can download for FREE that can keep time of the computer usage?

I want something that works like the "History" but could time CPU/computer usage. I want to see what time the computer was turned on and what time it was turned off, etc.

Without sounding impossible, is there something like a timer that can shut the computer down automatically when the time is up?

Safe/proven download please. Thanks a lot!

Manic Time

If you want to limit the time, maybe something like:
