    Need program to play WAVs dependant on laptop power status

    As title really..

    I need a program/script that will play a WAV (a different one each time) when:

    a) Laptop battery is fully charged
    b) Laptop battery is low (say 30%)
    c) Laptop battery is critical (10%?)
    d) Laptop switches to AC power
    e) Laptop switches to battery power

    Can't seem to find any generic programs that can manage this, nor can I seem to find a way to do it in vbscript. (Although MSDN seems to think you should be able to).

    Any ideas people?!

    Check the Windows sound options. I think WIndows has those options.

    Windows is supposed to be able to do Low Battery and Critical Battery but in my experience it's not very good at it!
