It usually takes me about 8 hours to single sleeve all the cables for a PSU, but I don't do more than a couple hours at a time. It definitely is hard on the hands.

And SG, I know the staples you are talking about, for a pneumatic stapler. I'll "borrow" some from my finishing carpenter buddy next time I'm over there.

Yup that is them, I like them better simply because you can hold it in one hand while reg staples I always need/want a third hand to do it right.

I find using two staples a lot easier than using one. You just stick one staple in, you shold be able to feel when it compresses the little pin inside the connecter. Then do the same with stable two. It shouldn't take much force. You can always use a pair of pliers if you are finding it hurting your hand. You don't need to hold the staples in place or anything. Then just pull gently on the wire. If the wire doesn't come easily then try pushing a small hex wrench in the hole on the front of the connector.
