Windows 7: Volume control based on time of day?

Volume control based on time of day?

Are there any utilities that can adjust the volume control based on the time of day?

If I turn the PC on before work at 5am, I don't want it loud. If the wife or kids use the PC the volume control could be at any setting.

Basically I want to be able to tell the computer...

... at 9am, put the system volume at 80%
... at 10pm, put the system volume at 60%
... at midnight, put the system volume at 40%

Can volume be controlled from the command line? I could use the task scheduler to do this if so.

Have a look at Nircommand NirCmd - Windows command line tool this has programmable volume control. it should be possible to set up tasks to perform the changes you need at a set time using the task scheduler ( set task to run at a set time and to run as soon as possible after the time to ensure it always runs .

How hard can it be to just turn the volume control to what level you want?

Not hard at all - but if you forget the log-on sound in windows can be quite an effective alarm clock

I think it would probably be difficult to automate the sound adjustment on a long term basis with accuracy.
To keep the PC from starting up with sound, remove the check from the following:

I have used Nircmd to automate this in the past, successfully, it just needs thought as to when to set the volume. I found it better to lower the volume at a set time (late night), and then increase during the day, the task manager also has options to inform the user when the changes are performed
