But getting there may be a chore. Sometimes way beyond the effort and learning folk want to invest.
But yes, it can do that.
I wanna connect my computer to a projector and have it turn on automatically in the morning when I have to wake-up and run a high def video of a beach or something nice. Maybe start it off with a sexy voice that says good morning, followed by some random relaxing music. Would be nice if it could display some reminders/alerts/weather on the side too.
Maybe with task manager?
