Alarm Clock Software

I am having a hell of a time getting up in the morning, and I need a quick fix to get some MP3s blaring to wake me up.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, figured I'd get the best responses here. Technology, right? :D

    Er, yes, I saw those, but the last program I randomly dl'd after a google search crashed a lot.. Wondering if anyone has any experience with reliable one. :)

    (Though maybe you know that list to be reliable?)

    Citrus Alarm Clock is what I use, and it works great.

    It even has a failsafe where it'll use the Windows "ding" over and over again until you wake up and turn it off/turn your speakers off, if it can't load up the music.

    If you are using windows, just set the task scheduler to open your mp3 player in the morning.

    This might be worth getting eventually as a replacement to your regular alarm clock:

    I'm quite sure I use this:

    Nothing like waking up to the last mission of Ace Combat 4 in the morning blasting in your ears.

    I've had nothing but good luck with Banshee Screamer alarm, and I believe it was in the linkey on the second post. It can do mp3's and wake your upstares neighbor with it's default alarm.

    is there a program that will start my computer at a certain time when it's shut off? I got a couple of hubs and devices that have a lot of flashing lights that keep me awake at night so I just power down my system.

    I would say *most* semi-recent pc's will have an option in the BIOS to boot up at a certain time of day. Some are even cool enough to do different times per day of the week. If this is a no go, there is another more complex option available if you have another pc somewhere that you don't turn off (or another device capable of it). Do a google on 'wake on lan' and see if you can get that working :)

    Just put post-it notes over the blinking. That's what I did, because my systems have processes running that need to go overnight for my business. Worked like a charm.

    :) Now I´m here wondering why my alarm clock doesn´t run away and hide when I don´t wake up...

    I use a program called "Alarm Clock" on my Mac. I also use my DS from time to time.

    College Alarm Clock is a simple masterpiece. You can have it beep (modifiable frequencies), play a CD, or open any file in its default manner. You can set up different alarms (times and types) for each day of the week. It's also free.
