GigAlarm is a multipurpose alarm/reminder program, capable of running files and playing multimedia files (including MP3s) to notify you of events. GigAlarm is capable of many other alarm actions, including changing the background wallpaper, syncing the system clock via the internet, shutting down/restarting/logging off Windows, scheduled hibernation resume, wave file playing (random or selected) and program/file running (also random or selected).
GigAlarm is a multithreaded program (i.e. it takes advantage of multi-processor and hyper threaded machines) and can schedule thousands of different events. Alarms can be programmed to auto-repeat on set days, by a time offset (such as every 5 hours or even a random time) or a set time after boot.
Various views are supported, including next alarms in order, deleted alarms, all alarms, a large view mode for across the room viewing and a calendar preview mode. The preview mode even shows the Window-Up Time, World Times and your daily bio-rhythm.
GigAlarm has a multitude of other options and capabilities, including alarm search and sort, Instant Alarms, alarm templates, snooze control, variable alarm cut off, repeating sounds, boot up alarms, countdown, variable pause, variable alarm warning, missed alarm notification, database selection and more. In addition, GigAlarm also provides an instant shutdown ability via its icon.
