wakeup - A talking and fully customizable alarm clock
wakeup username alarmID
wakeup plays an alarm for the given username, whose settings for the alarm can be modified using the wakeup-settings utility. The user's alarm that is run is specified by alarmID, which corresponds to the folder number in the user's wakeup settings folder ~/.wakeup. Alarm text and all associated options should be defined by running wakeup-settings as username. Although it is possible to modify the settings directly by editing the files in ~/.wakeup/, this is not recommended and make cause you to lose alarm settings. An option in wakeup-settings allows the alarm to wake the computer (from poweroff if the bios allows). In this case, wakeup is set by to run from root's cron, and the alarm will run in this case even if no user is logged in. One must log in or be logged in to stop the alarm. Note that for any part of the alarm which depends on information from the web to work when you are not logged in, you will need to set the wireless network(s) you connect to so that they connect before you log in. This can be done through NetworkManager, by selecting a connection, clicking "Edit..." and checking "Available to all users."
