You can reset a Timeline with:
On a different note:
From a residential perspective, I immediately think of a movie that is 2 1/2 hours long. I would probably code it so that at 1 hour 55 minutes the timeline would trip an event that beeps the panel and pops up a page that tells the user that the rack will shutdown in 5 minutes. (I might even go as far as putting a count down timer on the popup if I felt ambitious) This might not be needed in your application, just something I thought of while waiting for a call from the security company that has had me on hold for a while.
Sorry if someone beat me to it.... the security guy called while I was writing this and I had to deal with that before finishing this message.
FYI, if you do use decide to use the [dvTP,0] approach, make sure it is in an event and not in mainline.
