You can buy speed bleeders at most any auto parts store that has the red packaged HELP items. You just replace the normal bleed screw in your calipers with them. Crack them open the required amount and pump away on the pedal. When all the air is gone screw them down. The speed bleeders have a small check valve in them that prevents air from being sucked back in when you let up on the pedal. The main thing you have to worry about is to not let the master cylinder run out of fluid.

I made a power bleeder out of a $14 harbor freight vaccum pump (a venturi one for AC), some hose, fittings, and a glass jar. It works awesome and is very quick. Would be a good thing to look into if you have a compressor...I also used it for it's intended purpose and purged my AC in an r134a conversion.
