That's not an analysis, that's just specifying a point in time. As long as you specify the time zone (explicitly or implicitly) it's not a problem. Trying to do an analysis (like calculating durations) on a set of times not specified in a consistent timezone (which you would be doing if some of the times were daylight savings and some weren't) is like trying to measure with a ruler whose length changes while you're measuring.

1) Don't set up an access point. If you still need an access point, set up a encrypted one (which you should do anyways) and don't give the isolated PC the keys. WiFi isn't magic; if there's no place for it to go, it's not going to go anywhere.

2) Put a Faraday cage around the antenna. This could be as simple as wrapping it in foil.

But with a built-in battery, you can make it so you can't deprive it of power unless you disassemble it or don't charge it ever. It is not necessary to make it impossible to disable these things; we merely have to make it difficult, and impossible to say, "Oops, it was an accident."
