I want my laptop to wake up from suspended mode in the morning and alarm me to wake up using my mp3 file. How do I do it?

I tried apmsleep, but it doesn't work cause my PC doesnt have "suspend to RAM" feature in BIOS. What can I do? Thanks!

If you can have your laptop connected to internet by a cable, you can try to use an other computer or smartphone to send a "magic packet" to it, and wake it up.

Look for "wake on lan" (WOL).

Nope, it's wifi only. –  Chelios Nov 21 '12 at 15:39
