I don't use that device any more, but while I did (for about two years) 
I used the feature all the time.  Your question reminds me, though, that 
there was always a "5:00 p.m." unmute time among the options, to allow 
muting the device until the end of the workday even if you hit mute 
first  thing in the morning.  I don't remember whether that 5:00 time 
was adjustable, but I suspect not.  Tapwave went out of business before 
any significant software updates were issued.

Of course, there are a couple of other ways to deal with the 
overlong-meeting problem: allow some extra time for it in the first 
place (which can be inconvenient if the meeting *doesn't* run long), or 
re-up the mute time when you notice the meeting running long (which is 
easy enough to do).
