    Alarm Clock
    What would you guys reccommend for an "alarm clock" app? Hopefully, it can play music from itunes and wake the computer from sleep. I've seen some but there are so many choices and i was wondering what you guys use...

    you can use energy saver in sytem preferences to schedule the computer to automatically shut down at a specified time each night and then use sytempreferences>accounts>login items and then select a certain song from your itunes library to start the day, preferably something loud and rocking. youll have to disable your login password for the computer to login automaticaly and im not sure this works with a scheduled sleep becasue the computer doesnt have to log in to wake from sleep. there may however be a setting for that.

    I use alarm clock ver. 2.2.3
    Love it, wakes the computer up from sleep, you can have the music blare at you or it has easy wake mode which gradually increases the volume of the song till it's pretty loud. The song continues to play until you shut it up. I have my MB set to some speakers and a sub in the living room so in the morning I'm forced to get out of bed to turn it off. It's a great app. I used irooster b4 which was nice but wasn't free. This is simple, that's enough for me.

    Awaken has proven to be a very simple and easy to use app. And very effective as well...
