Game Wake is a simple to configure virtual alarm clock application. It provides multiple types of alerts and features both a timer and counter mode. Four different sounds can be played. The sounds can be combined with a text message and a blinking effect. Instead of using notifications a shutdown can be initiated. Game Wake supports two operation modes:
- "Timer Mode": Default alarm function where the time can be set at which the alarm should start
- "Counter Mode": Hours and minutes that should elapse before the alarm starts
Once the alarm has been set, clicking on the "Close" button will not terminate Game Wake, but minimize it to the tray icon area. This feature has been incorporated to prevent accidental termination while the alarm is still set. If you want to terminate Game Wake anyway, simply right-click on the tray icon and select "Exit".
Game Wake stores its settings in an INI based configuration file. The menu item "Options" can be used to select what should be saved. Multiple languages are supported.
Game Wake is available for Debian and Windows.
