Windows Timer - gHacks Tech News

Windows Timer

TimeComX is a portable software program for computers running a Windows operating system including Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 that can be used to put the operating system into different states at a specified time.

The Windows timer can be configured to reset, shutdown, suspend or play an audio signal at a specified time or after time has passed. It is possible to set a counter or specify seconds, minutes, hours and even days before the configured action starts.

Another option is to set an alarm clock to specify a certain hour of the day. While reset, shutdown or suspend do not require explanation the audio signal mode does. This mode can be used to select an mp3 or other audio file which will be played when the time is met.

The timer software will display a visual reminder and run the defined action at the specified time afterwards.
