yea you are right. but i must do it in ahk ;(
I know the feeling. I think if I could just get them to always double quote strings that would eliminate half the helpfile browsing. It does have better mouse "hotkey" support than AutoIt. But a major thing I like about AutoIt3 is it's more "modular" or at least it's easier to create encapsulated function libraries.
So to break the problem down, you mention the power being unplugged, sound, and a Tooltip(or something similar.) Are all 3 in need of implementation or just the alerts to the user?
