Re: Church Bells Tower - auto bell chimer

@Marius: I mean that the code calculates the number of milliseconds to the next even 15 minutes. So if the app starts at 10:08:10, the number of msecs will be 410000. But at the end of theChimer the number of msecs to the next time will be closer to 15 * 60 * 1000 = 900000, the exact number dependin...

Re: Church Bells Tower - auto bell chimer

Very nice job! Just downloaded it and tested, but noticed that due to the timer firing every 15:th second, the bells toll slightly off time. May I suggest something like SetTimer theChimer, % ((15 - Mod(A_Min, 15)) * 60 - A_Sec) * 1000 - A_MSec The timer would then have to be reset at the end of the...

Re: Environment.ahk - Change User and System Environment Variables Permanently

Thanks! I did notice a couple of misspellings, though - SystemEnviroment vs SystemEnvironment. I corrected my downloaded version; not sure of possible implications leaving them in. Maybe none at all?

Re: Environment.ahk - Change User and System Environment Variables Permanently

Cool! But I would suggest a name change of all functions to Env_xxx, making them standard lib compliant. Then you can just drop the main script (renamed Env.ahk) in the \Lib folder.

Re: Old script to hide unusued tray icons broken with Win10 update

I have the same problem - I had Seans' script working, and it broke. So I tried your code, FanaticGuru, but according to SendMessage, the orphaned icon(s) just don't exist - SendMessage, 0x418, 0, 0, ToolbarWindow32%key%, ahk_class %sTray% ; TB_BUTTONCOUNT sets ErrorLevel to zero (no icons). Strange...

Re: Standby Prevention at CPU load

Maybe I misunderstood you - I got the impression that the high CPU load raised the temperature too much, which in turn made the PC go to sleep.
If anyone knows a simpler way to limit the CPU speed I would really like to know about it!

Re: Standby Prevention at CPU load

Another approach would be to crank down CPU speed if the temperature rises too high - http://www.autohotkey.com/board/topic/1 ... on-script/

Re: Locking computer & unlocking with a Hotkey (not having to type password)

I think you missed the point: as long as the first keypress is correct, you don't have to type the password at all. And that's the beauty of it!

Re: Locking computer & unlocking with a Hotkey (not having to type password)

You could improve security quite a lot by preventing intruders from random guessing: ... 6:: 7:: 8:: 9::i=0 and then Capslock & u:: if i++ { String = InputBox String, Computer is locked!, Password:, HIDE, 250, 150,,,,60 If String <> CorrectPassWord ; or whatever you choose Return } ExitApp Any wrong...

Autolock - lock your laptop when not at home

If you are like me, you like to fire up your laptop, grab a cup of coffee, and then come back to a computer that is all ready and waiting for you. But that means you have to logon automatically, which is very handy, but not very secure. So the ideal solution would be enable autologon when at home, o...
