Want application that notifies the user when PC is idle.

Hello SevenForums!

Do you guys know of an application that can notify the user, with a sound/alarm, if the PC has been idle for more than lets say 15 or 30min?

Thanks! (:

You can use the Task Scheduler to run a script or program on idle. The script could contain a single line like start idle-alarm.mp3. That way you could use any sound you wanted in the mp3 file as the alarm. The sound would play using the default mp3 player.
