Hi all. Im bored. And when I get borede I think of things. Usually pretty useless. But anyway, sometime soon I think Ill be having my computer running through my stereo so I can play music thorugh it. Now, the problem is, my new stereo si just amp + cd player, so has no alarm feature. And occasionally I lie waking up to the sound of Millenia Nova, AIR or Zero 7, so was thinking - could I set my PC as an alarm?
I've had instructions on how to make a shortcut on my desktop, a 'mini-program' that when run, shuts down windows (I use this to set times when to turn the computer off). So could I use a smiliar system, using Task Schedular, to switch the computer on, and then have another 'shortcut' that opens and plays whichever music files I chose the night before?
I'm now thinking this idea is either stupid, unneccessarry, impossible, or actually very straight forward and been done many times before.
Any ideas, useful links etc would be great, thanks a lot
Thanks a lot for your reply. And I dont know how I didnt realise that, guess Im just pretty tired (thats my excuse - same reason goes for all the spelling mistakes Ive justr ealised in my first post). I just seemed to think you could get task schedular to do things at any time, but obviously that ouwldnt be the case :S
Thanks a lot for the link, seems to be the start of my 'mini project' hehe, sounds pretty patheic really but could work!
Please keep the suggesitons coming, as I said any help is much appreciated even if it turns out I dont use it, I always like reading about things I dont know!
lol good point about the alarm clock idea! Hehe yeah I know there's other ways but for some reason this jut seemed like a 'good' idea last night - something to keep me entertained! And really I want a CD Player alarm, but dont want to spend however much it is they cost. Dont worry I'm not too desperate about this idea, just thught it might be nice!
Thanks again everyone, like I said any suggestions would be great
lol Thanks for that link accord. Basically Im not actually too bothered about one, I just thought it might be a nice thing if I could get my computer to work as an alarm, just a way of wasting my time really (school holidays), I dont really want anotther stereo taking up more room.
So anyway thanks a lot for your help everyone, but dont worry about it, just a little idea I had whilst bored and really I was just more interested to know if it could be done rather than actually trying to find a solution
