    I use a program just called Alarm Clock. It's simple and easy and it works. (And it's free.)

    I use a real alarm clock, because my music never wakes me up. :)

    However, I have tried Alarm Clock, and it works pretty well.

    I need something I can accidently break by smacking the snooze button hard as I've done that before on a pretty well built one. :eek:

    Otherwise I'd pony up for Aurora. Nice app for sure.

    i'm using aurora 3.0 and it woke me up right on time with a new episode of bravescast (i can't use 4.0 since it's 10.5 only though). i'll tweak it the next few days to adjust it.

    i think 3.0 is free though, could be wrong.

    The moment I move into my new room where my desk isn't directly underneath my bed I plan to start using Awaken. It has a sleep timer and can go full screen which will be nice to easily glance at the time when i wake up.

    It's not a bad one, especially for being free. It wakes from sleep but doesn't boot up.

    you can set in system preferences when you want your computer to start up each morning then get the application to open on startup so it then wakes you up by the alarm or whatever. go into energy saver then click schedule.

    Yea this is a good program, and free. It has the easy wake feature which is pretty cool. I hate waking up though, worst prat of the day.
