Windows 7: Want application that notifies the user when PC is idle.

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.
