Is there any software by which I can set a time for my laptop to turn on automatically and play an mp3, so that it serves me as an alarm clock?
tell the name of the software if possible
For some reason although it sort of works for me but not quite. you should be able to check the "Wake the computer to run this task" under the conditions task. I ran a test by setting the alarm for a few minutes ahead and put my laptop into sleep or hibernate. Now with the laptop not being of it should be able to run the task of the alarm. For some reason it doesn't. Any suggestions? And I have checked the run at highest privileges and run if user is logged in or not.
there would have to be another running computer on the network to send the wake on lan command (this is all pure uninformed speculation on my part)
How is a program going to run if the computer is turned off? If the computer is hard wired to the network, maybe enable wake on lan and auto run a media player, but there would have to be another running computer on the network to send the wake on lan command (this is all pure uninformed speculation on my part)
these are still not working :(
is there something to do with my system ???
i have windows 7 64 bit
i want the alarm to turn on the laptop...i would not leave the laptop on AC power..just set the alarm at night and shut it down....

i tried using this....using task scheduler to play song in WMP
but it didnt work for me....can you tell me how to use task scheduler, there wasnt any option saying "turn on the computer" or something like that...there was only "start computer when on AC", but i cannot keep my laptop on AC all night..,.
I found an app called Alarm, check it out
alternatively you may just use Windows Task Scheduler or any programs with similar functionality. You won't need to install anything for that. The following two articles show how to accomplish what you need in simple steps.
