I use a call-intercepting system that (among other things) has a quiet-hours feature. For each phoneset, you can specify that this phoneset will not ring at certain times of day. My bedroom phones don't ring at night, for example, while those in the rest of the house do. That way, if I'm up I answer, but if I'm abed I sleep uninterrupted. It can also assign quiet hours for any specific incoming caller (depending upon his caller-ID), limiting the times he can call; and it can restrict individual phonesets from being used at all by time-of-day -- useful to get the kids off the phone when they have phones in their rooms but should be asleep and not on the phone after midnight.

All this hasn't much to do with this thread -- except that, having designed and built this system myself, I can attest that this sort of thing is easy to implement.

Ok, so what is this call-intercepting system? how does one acquire one?

That's a clever workaround. Serendipitous benefit is that it reduces electricity usage, too. :cool:
