View Full Version : ALarm clock config

10-04-2002, 08:56 PM
Is it possible to get a program that will allow me to have an alarm like a clock radio.
Set the alarm for a specific time and allow it to play a song through winamp maybe.
Also would me PC have to be on during the alarm, or could i set the alarm, turn my pc off, and then it would power on and play the song.
It sounds a little far fetched, yet I have a feeling that someone out there has written the code for this proggy im looking for
Thanks for your help peeps.

Yeah just use the task scheduler to open your playlist or just a song and the player associated with the file/s will open and act just like an alarm clock. ;)

Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Task Sheduler (or Schedule Task)

Yes your PC will have to be on or it won't work. ;)

Also make sure you have a password to enter windows.

If you don't want to type out a password to log in (like me) then just tweak the registry to hold the password info.
