Windows 7: Looking for a way to automatically switch playback device on bootup

Looking for a way to automatically switch playback device on bootup

I'm trying to use my computer as a wake-up alarm. I typically have my USB headset as my default audio device, but I also have speakers plugged in and turned on. When my computer boots up in the morning, I would like to have a script that changes the default audio device to the speakers for a certain amount of time, then changes the audio device back. Is this even possible?

Nothing that I know of to change the Default playback devices as you want.

This would be a nightmare to set up.
I just used the scheduler to turn my pc into a alarm clock.
This involves having it sleep overnight instead of powering down though.

What you are talking about would be very problematic and more than likely result in the bootmgr getting screwed up.
