I recommend going through the DAQFactory - LabJack application guide and the Guided Tour.  Its a PDF installed with DAQFactory.  

That will guide you through most of what you need.  Making something turn off after two hours is a basic sequence script that you would run when the button is clicked.  But NOT in the Action of the button, it has to be a sequence that gets started on its own.  The script is something like:

fan = 1 // turn fan on
delay(7200)  // wait 2 hours
fan = 0  // turn fan off
