    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.

    Since you don't know what you're doing and it sounds like something that
    connects to AC mains, my advice would be to not **** with it.
