How can I make my computer wake up or start a certain time?
Like this ?
Yes, but I don't want it to do any task. Does it only wake up from sleep mode or does it work with hibernate mode? Can I set the sleep timeout to 0, becaue I don't want it to go to sleep again.
Now I'm confused. Why do you want to wake it, if you don't want it to do something ?
because I want it be turned on when I wake up. Then I just have to hit play to start listening to music
What is the make and model of the computer ?
Hi kake. Wouldn't it be good if your computer awakes, and then wakes you up? Try these links. Might be helpful...
Do I have to leave the computer running normally or can I put it into sllep mode when I use the alarms?
Try sleep mode. If it works, great. If it doesn't, then the idea by LH is very appropriate- Task Scheduler.
Schedule it to run WMP (or a specific playlist) at 9am in the morning. Simple alarm click :)
P.S. Check your BIOS. Sometimes the bios has an option of auto wake up.
