[Athen] Windows 7 setting up a recurring reminder

How about using the google task scheduler, it will present a pop-up reminder
Also, I would like to add that in my opinion, 10 minutes is too long a
period to wait and save unless, the student is a SLOW typist. I have lost
lots of data when I forget to save in that time frame. - as in all AT, much
depends on the user. I would reconsider and calculate the amount of input
within a target time frame to determine the most efficient "SAVE" option.
How about using something like a MotivAider and have it vibrate at the
targeted time frames -the vibration is a subtle reminder to save?
