Can my FreeRunner remind me to shut it down if it is still running at 22:00?

Hello list,

I still have not received my FreeRunner, but UPS says the package is
scheduled to be delivered on Tuesday.  Anyway, I have found Yet Another
limitation of my Nokia 6103b.  I am almost certain the FreeRunner will be
able to do what I need, but I wanted to ask how.

I prefer to shut down my cell phone before going to bed, but I frequently
forget to do so.  I used to have an alarm in my Palm Z22 (which is a PDA
only, not a phone) that sounded every day at 22:00 to remind me to shut down
my cell phone.  I no longer have that alarm because I had to stop using my
Palm Z22 because its touch screen no longer works except when it is cold
(see my previous message to this list about the reliability of resistive
touch screens).  I thought it would make more sense to have my cell phone
remind me to shut it down instead of having another device remind me to shut
down my cell phone, but the best I can do with my Nokia 6103b is have an
alarm that sounds every day at 22:00 even if I have already shut down the
Nokia 6103b by then.  It is obviously pointless to have the Nokia 6103b
remind me to shut it down when it has already been shut down, but I asked
Nokia if the Nokia 6103b could do what I wanted and they answered no.

So, how can I do this with my FreeRunner? :)
