I'm trying to find a simple application that I can easily configure to shut down a specified application after a set amount of time.  Basically, I fall asleep using slingplayer (watching TV on my laptop), and I always wake up hours later and have to turn it off.  I'm looking for an application that I can set for 1-2 hrs to automatically close slingplayer.  There are countless applications that will shut down Windows and turn the PC off, these are not what I'm looking for.  I do not want the computer to turn off, I just want to close slingplayer.
Thanks

Thanks for the suggestion.  It definitely does what I asked for, but not as eloquently as I had hoped for.  I was looking for a simple, polished program.  I do appreciate the info and will award points.  I just want to keep this open a little while, hopefully someone will have another recommendation.
