Hi Mike

Never used it myself but I believe a popular one is AutoCAD Electrical although its not a cheap software. Here's a link:

Autodesk - AutoCAD Electrical

Not sure if this is the kind of thing you had in mind?

I use Visio, pretty simple to use.
The reflected ceiling diagrams come in handy for working out spacings for spots on dodgy ceiling shapes.

its the 2007 version, upgraded all microsoft 2003 to 2007, takes a bit of getting used to at first but is definately better.
