Timer with extras
« on: January 30, 2010, 04:38:18 AM »
I'm trying to find a timer that will count down and then at the time , bring up an application and switch it on(You have to manually switch it on unlike FRD) for 2hrs (7.00am-9.00am GMT) then switch it off again.
Im trying to get ARLES DOWNLOAD MANAGER to do that, switch on in the morning for two hrs and then switch off again.Would you have any suggestions as to how that is done, im pretty green about programming though.

You might be able to do that with windows scheduler

PowerPro can easily do this!

ron101 - you could check out : Marxio timer - it's great and could be what you're looking for.

Take a look at Sikuli then. It can be used in conjunction with the Task Scheduler.

PowerPro is not that easy to master, but it is very powerful!
