In either case,one way to do it would be to just make a function, say,
check_restriction(), and call it about every 15 minutes or whatever 
(depends how strict your rule is).  If the time is after 8am then have it
set wizlock to 34 (or if it must be taken down, have it call the shutdown
procedure).  Then if it was only wizlocked, have it wizlock 0 at 5pm, or
if it was shut down, have the script sleep for about 9 hours and then start
the mud up again.
