Turning Your Computer into an Alarm Clock

These days a friend asked me if I knew of any program to turn the computer into an alarm clock. I looked up and found some legal right in Sourceforge, but seemed not the best option. We came to the conclusion that the simplest way would be to use Windows Task Scheduler.

First of all, open the Task Scheduler: Start/Control Panel/Scheduled Tasks.

Now let’s choose Schedule New Task.

On the first screen click on next and then we will choose any program and go ahead again.

After giving a name to the task and choosing its frequency (in my case, weekly), you will set a time and the days of the week in which this alarm will work.

Next you must enter the password of your user, it is mandatory to prevent anyone from placing alarms on your computer without your authorization.

On the last screen, check the box to open the advanced options when finished and click Finish.

Now begins the really important part:

First let’s change the program that is open, for a song. Click Browse, and then under File Typeschoose All Files. Choose your favorite song and click Open.

You do not have to do anything in the second tab, but in the third we will select the Wake the computer option to perform this task. If you are on a notebook, it will also offer options regarding the battery, you can leave it as is.

Click OK and that’s it, your alarm clock is set and you can put your computer on standby when you go to sleep. But be careful, this method only awakens the computer from the stand-by, if it is hibernating, nothing will happen.

And of course, plug your speakers into the volume that is most enjoyable.

Do you use any other method to wake up? Any simpler program yet? Leave your comment.
