    Alarm that works when the computer is sleeping

    I need to remind myself to do something at about 3:45 every day. Assuming the computer is switched on but sleeping, is there an alarm that will go off in those circumstances?

    Hi, you could use a scheduled task:
    How to Make Your PC Wake From Sleep Automatically

    or you could install a freeware clock alarm
    From Comfort Software: If you need alarm clock software for Windows, this is the software you are looking for. Free Alarm Clock supports unlimited number of alarms so that you are not restricted to the number of alarms you can have. Alarms that you set will sound even if computer goes to sleep. While your PC is sleeping and the time comes to activate your alarm, Free Alarm Clock will wake your PC up. The alarm clock can remind you about important events by playing your favorite music and showing a notification message. You can set alarm volume level to a comfortable level depending on the time of the day.

    Note the universal Alarms and Clock seems specified not to wake your PC.
