    I wonder... might even be able to create a batch file that does both at the same time and have the scheduler start that off.
    I want it to pop up a window and play a sound.
    How do I get it to pop up a window and play a sound.
    For instance, if I choose, Windows Media Player, it would just open WMP.
    What would make it play a sound file?

And it has lots of options. You can make an alarm "daily" or "every tuesday at 12.03" or whatever you want. You can also input text reminders etc.
    Another thing, there is an option that makes the alarm signal play until you shut it off... I find that very useful sometimes. There are also options that makes it shut off when the tune has finished playing, or when it's been played a number of times etc...

    Chameleon Clock. Good shit.
    Thank you for the personal recommendation.
    I appreciate that!


    I found it.
    It's $30.
    I might keep looking since it's for work.

    I've been using this one for a while. It's not very pretty but it's free and works great.

    Alarm - Free Digital Alarm Clock for Windows

    (PS - it uses military time)

    This is a ridiculous reason to dismiss PC-based alarm clocks, but it's apropos anyway. I had a funny experience with using a PC as an alarm clock when I was younger. I tried using Windows 3.11's built in clock & alarm feature and I was greeted in the morning to a blue screen of death. Decided from that point on I'd never rely on a complicated piece of electronics to wake me up.

    That principle hasn't failed me yet. Cellphones work most of the time, but they're prone to flakiness too. I bought an iPod Alarm Clock Radio and decided to banish it to my work cubicle desk for two reasons: one, the alarm was weak, and two, the damned thing would reset the clock to 1:00AM at random whenever I plugged in my iPod.

    I use a simple red LED alarm clock with alarm set feature and big wide snooze button, 9V backup battery and AC-powered on the side of my desk at home. Simplicity is beautiful.

    For work though, I rely on my cellphone's calendar, which integrates with Outlook when I sync my email on it (it's a Treo 755p smartphone). I figure if I'm missing a meeting due to cellphone flakiness (which hasn't happened more than once or twice, thankfully...) someone else will get in touch with me.

    The one I have is free, it's called Cool Timer. It can do everything you're looking for, in case you're not happy with the one you found.

    I think that Rainmeter, or something similar, would work for this..
