Introducing the all new, sleek and simple Cool Timer. We think it's so cool that we even considered changing the name to "Awesome Timer".
Cool Timer does a lot in just a little space with a small memory footprint, using very little system resources and taking up very little screen real estate.
Cool Timer can be used in three different modes, either as a countdown timer, as an alarm clock, or as a stopwatch. You can quickly and easily switch modes whenever you want and even have the program start in any of the 3 modes you specify.
Cool Timer can play any sound file or one of several built-in sounds that you specify when time expires in countdown mode or as a wake-up alarm in alarm clock mode. It can even optionally display a cool, LED light board style text message that you specify when time expires to remind you why you set the timer in both alarm clock and countdown mode.

In alarm clock mode, you set a specific time of day and day(s) of the week that you would like the alarm to go off. When it goes off, you can click the snooze button to automatically reset the alarm to go off a short time later to allow you to sleep a little longer. You can also optionally have the program automatically perform a task on your computer, such as start a program or open a website, when the alarm goes off. In addition, you can choose to have the program present you with a simple, fun, image-based jigsaw puzzle to solve before it will allow you turn off the alarm. This makes you kick start your brain a little to get you going in the morning so that you aren't tempted to just turn of the alarm and then groggily, inadvertantly fall back to sleep.

When used in stopwatch mode, the program can track how much time you spend on a project for which you're being paid by the hour or similar situations. There is also a lap time feature which allows you to pause the counter and display the time at which it was paused while still counting up in the background. Stopwatch time is accurate to hundreths of a second.
Cool Timer allows you to save and reload frequently used lengths of time as presets so that you can quickly and easily set time on the timer without having to do it manually in countdown mode.
There is also an option to display the timer's digits in full screen mode making them very large and easily readable from across the room.
