i hate my alarm clock
want computer solution

 11:32 am on Mar 24, 2005 (gmt 0)

can anyone think of a way to use a pc as an alarm clock? for ex, start an mp3 playlist at a specific time?

scheduled tasks only allows you to trigger a program, not say, an .m3u file

Add the playlist as an argument to the command.

For example, using WinAmp, if you currently have "C:\Program Files\Winamp\winamp.exe" as the command in the scheduled task, change it to "C:\Program Files\Winamp\winamp.exe playlist.m3u"

There are a few "alarm" plugins for winamp.

I used to use my comp as an alarm clock but I found that I was ruining songs by having them wake me up :) Bad association.

I had a girlfriend with an alarm clock for deaf people. I don't know why, she had it she could hear. It did not buzz or ring per se, but it shook the bed like a violent earthquake. After waking up to that a couple of times I made sure to sleep at my place, whether she was there or not. Worth a try if you don't like the buzzing.
