(Glamour Life Stuff is required for these, obviously!)
I got a little obsessed with butlers when I got Glamour Life Stuff, but I don't like the fact that they can do a lot of inappropriate things freely, like hitting the globe bar 50 times a day and taking bubble baths just because they're bored. And then - they won't go to bed. I couldn't fix the butler not sleeping issue, but I made a workaround that helps with the slow super speed problem, along with no autonomous mods for butler bar globe drinks and bubble baths.

Individual Mod Details and Downloads
No Autonomous Bar Globe for Butlers - This is compatible with my No Autonomous Bar Globe mod; that one covers all Sims EXCEPT butlers while this one covers Butlers ONLY. These are also for the Glamour Life Stuff Bar Globe only. If you just want to cover all bars at once, Coolspear1 at MTS has a no auto bar drinks mod that does that. DOWNLOAD
No Autonomous Bubble Bath for Butlers - Updated June 3, 2017 The only reason that butlers ever take a bath is because Maxis programmed them to be slackers who take advantage of their employers. They have no hygiene decay, so the bubble baths are a response to their need for fun. This mod just stops them from taking baths, ever. DOWNLOAD
Less Autonomous Cooking for Butlers - Updated June 4, 2017 I made a no autonomous cooking mod for butlers, but it prevented them from cooking on demand as well. So I modified it to allow that, but reduce the autonomous cooking they seem to do for no particular reason. With this mod, they will probably still cook if they're hungry and there are no leftovers in the fridge, and maybe occasionally at other times; especially if there's a party going on. But the wild cooking obsession should be reduced. DOWNLOAD
No Butler Replacement - Updated June 3, 2017 MAY REQUIRE OTHER MODS to be effective.
My reasons for making this mod was as a workaround to the problem of butlers not going to bed when the rest of the family does, which causes slow-moving super speed mode because of that one uncontrollable person who is awake on the lot. I couldn't fix THAT problem, but with this mod, you can use cheats to get rid of the butler, then get the same butler back the next day.
This mod simply changes the default to "replace" a butler when they leave the lot to "do nothing." That means that you can get the butler back by rehiring them, and 99.9% of the time you will get the very same butler back. (The only reason I'm not saying 100% is because I'm not positively sure, but I've always gotten the same butler back every time I've done it.)
In order to do that, you will need to have a way to get rid of the butler in the first place. The easiest way is to have a mod that allows you to turn on debug cheats (note that this is different than "buy debug" in the catalog.) You can do this with MC Command Center or some other mods. There may be other ways to delete or remove a Sim from a lot that I'm not aware of. After you delete the butler, you will still actually have butler service so you have to use the phone to cancel it, then turn around and hire a butler again.
This mod could also be used to have your butler take a leave of absence. THIS HAS NOT BEEN TESTED, but there is a good chance that you would get the same butler back even if you put a span of days or weeks in between the firing and hiring. DOWNLOAD
All of these mods are compatible with each other, so you can use as few or as many as you like.
