Vertime Time Tracker Program - Free Version gets you everthing but
reports. For $25, you can get the full version and get all of your
functionality. I uses it for my business (contract technical writing)
and my clients love the detailed reports that I can produce (and yep,
there's the "Start" button that you want.)

Is there a Windows application that can help me keep track of hours,
dates,
and time I spend writing (MS Word 2003) and using Photoshop, Visio, etc.
without having to detail everything manually?

I want to keep track of how many hours I am working and when. So, at the
end
of it all, I want to be able to look at a bunch of data (including when
I
start and when I stopped) and see that I worked for 35 hours on chapter
1,
mostly between 11 pm and 2 am, or that the entire project took me 700
hours
of writing.

Ideally it would be some kind of small widget where you just press
"start"
and "stop" every time you work, or something that detects automatically
that
you did. The problem is, what do you do with open documents that are
left in
the background that are on hold or that you use as a reference?

I think that such an application might also be useful to track what the
progress of other Tech Writers.

Desired qualities:

1. Free (ideally)
2. Widows compatible
3. Has a widget interface of some kind (not essential)
4. Keeps track of the amount of time AND the time of day and dates
5. Data is downloadable into csv format
6. Web app is OK but must be able to record time while I'm not connected
to
the internet (and then upload later).

Does such a thing exist?

Thanks to all,

Sylvia
