Hello godwindotnet,

not sure if it is an option but you could run your app on the windows scheduler which is great for that sort of thing

hope this helps a bit

If you don't want to use a Timer then use the System.Threading.Thread.Sleep() function.  Calculate the time interval needed to your next "event" in milliseconds and the put your app to sleep for that duration.  When it wakes up it will be the correct time.  If you have a GUI then hide your app first as it will unresponsive during the Sleep interval.  Or you could create a Class that encapsulates a Thread.  Make the encapsulated thread sleep and when it wakes up raise an event from your Class to notify the main UI.
