I also thought of LANbox,
Light I Rama also has boxes that will do what you need.  They are pretty easy to program and can do the time of day kind of stuff you want as well.

Thank you all so much. These are great suggestions and I have learned a lot in the last few hours.
It seems that in this case, the simplest answer is the best one...
John Fruits suggested that cutting the power through a timer or photocell would be the best solution. My concern was that the lights would not come back on to the pre-set program. I was able to test that this evening  and as Len Zenith Jr said, they do in fact come back on the same way they were turned off. So, a basic (and inexpensive) photocell control looks like the best way to go in this situation. Simple and effective.
Thank you all again so much for your help.

That'll work.  Just make sure that whatever photocell controller you buy has some sort of logic so that a cloudy day won't make your lights keep going on and off, especially if the ambient daylight is hovering right at the activation threshold!

I'll second this. I've had one running LED PARs at a city park for 4 years and hasn't missed a beat. Except for the one time the electrical box flooded and wiped out the cueserver's wall wart. The real time clock option works great.
