I just had a thought. I'm sure it's one of those things everybody but me has been doing for years:
At the end of the day, leave an info/warning/error in the test code explaining what the next step should be.
That way, instead of staring numbly at the screen for fifteen minutes in the morning, while you wait for the coffee to kick in, you can just run the latest test and follow your own orders!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or whatever festival you choose to celebrate this winter season.
