Win XP Pro - Scheduled Tasks

  Marky_Bhoy 22:59 01 Feb 2004

Is it possible to schedule a task for Win XP pro to switch itself on and off.

I was hoping to use my PC as an alarm clock etc. I can't leave my PC on all of the time because it is too noisy.

And if it is possible can I scheduled a task that will open up IE and go to a specific URL (for instance launch the bbc radio player).

Is it any wonder that some PCs throw wobblies every now and again? Brain the size of a planet,more power than got men to the Moon, and you want it to be a clockradio. :o)

I gave an example of a clock radio just to give people an idea of what I want to do.

I intend to do more.

So leo49, you want to give me a solution?

even buzz and co had to know what time to leave!
Who would be daft enough to want to turn there pc in to _ _ _ anything ? DVD player,CD player, video game machine, you name it asomebdy is going to try it. But never an alarm here

"I intend to do more"

would that be a gobblin' teas maid or am i thinking about something totally different.......PS i hope you did not take my last post the wrong way. My view would be why pay £XXX for a pc and then have to buy a dam clock. Just thought, my phone has an alarm, my radio and my telly so why not my pc cheers Kev:~}

Thank you kev.Ifty.
