I don't find it much of a chore. There's an automatic reminder set up in iCal at two-monthly intervals. I then unplug the MacBook and generally leave it running overnight. In the morning I worry a bit as to why it's dead before remembering that it needs to power plugged in - so it does mean I loose a couple in minute's of work will I fish the power cord out from behind the desk because I forgot to secure it with a paper weight.
