    Hi, Mike. A lot of heating pads are set up so they'll turn off after a couple
    of hours to prevent skin burns while someone's sleeping.

    A fairly straightforward way to do what you want would be to cycle power off
    for a few seconds every hour or so. I think some intelligent timers available
    at the hardware store have this capability.

    It's probably not a good idea (especially since we're in S.E.B. here) to open
    up the controller and make mods. Also, remember why they put in auto shutoff
    -- it's a safety feature that's there to protect you.

    Good luck, and warm holidays.
