Projector switch off message
The idea for his little program came about because the caretaker was finding projectors left on when he was locking up. It displays a large message on the screen, toggles the background colour every 10 seconds and announces an audio message after a minute and every minute after that until the message is clicked. I thought about using Net Send but it seemed a bit tame and I needed something that wouldn’t be ignored. We’ve had it running for 2 weeks and it definitely makes a difference. Run it at the end of the day and perhaps at lunch using the AT command to schedule it to run on the remote machine.
AT \\machinename 15:15 /INTERACTIVE /EVERY:m,t,w,th,f "\\server\share\Projector.exe"

Nice idea. Might try this out for some of the projectors we have that can't be set to turn off automatically after inactivity.

Does your caretaker have a projector remote ?

He does but the batteries have gone . Seriously, it’s not the caretakers job to turn projectors off and if a projector is still on when he locks up at 5:30 that’s 2 hours of unneeded use in 1 day alone. Multiply that by a school year and the figures add up.

nice idea, not sure bout the audio though, couldnt it be something like "Please could you turn off you projector if not in use"

At least is nothing rude . I was looking for a more appropriate message but when I heard the hello one it reminded me of the smiley popup advert which is quite annoying.
The kids like it here but if anyone wants to supply me with a more appropriate sound file I will change it.
