Computer to wake you

For Windows users, try College Alarm Clock.

College Alarm Clock lets you wake up listening to your favourite music! You can also set it up so you can wake up at different times on different days.

For Mac users, try iAlarm.

I've tested iAlarm and it works well. You can actually pull from any of your playlists and set the duration that it runs as an alarm in the morning (i.e. make an iTunes morning playlist for iAlarm - something loud and energetic that gets you out of bed ;). It also allows you to play music before you go to bed (i.e. make an iTunes bedtime playlist just for iAlarm - something soft and mellow); you can then set iAlarm to quit and put your computer to sleep at a set time.

Both College Alarm Clock and iAlarm are free!
