Wakeup Time
Wakeup Shake Checkbox
Action setup
Wakeup Sound List
Set/Cancel Buttons

Sleep Period: Check the "For" box if you would like have the note to sleep for a specified period of time. For example, if you set up the period to "3 days" and enable the note to sleep, the moment you save the configurations 7 Sticky Notes the note will disappear (fade away) and a count down of 3 days will start. Then, at the time 3 days have passed by, the note will pop up on your Desktop (shaking and/or playing a sound, if you set them up) for you to know that the note has just woken up. The time period can be configured in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, or months, using the drop down list of this parameter.

Wakeup Shake Checkbox: Enables or disables the note's "shaking" effect when it wakes up. If this option is enabled, the note will literally - and quickly - shake on your screen so you cannot miss its awake!!

Wakeup Time: Check the "Until" box if you would like to have the note to wakeup at a exact day and hour, specified at the time selection box on the left and the day selection box on the right. For example, if now is 18:58 of March 23, 2017, and you setup the wakeup time for 2 days from now, at March 25, 2017, the moment you save the configurations the note will disappear (fade away) and 7 Sticky Notes will start a count down of 2 days. Then, exactly at 18:58 of March 25, 2017, the note will pop up on your Desktop (shaking and/or playing a sound, if you set them up) for you to know that the note has just woken up! Tip: right click the date and time selection boxes to set them as "Now".

Wakeup Sound List: Specifies the wakeup sound for the note using any sound present at the Sounds List of 7 Sticky Notes, which you can at the "Sleep/Alarm" section of 7 Sticky Notes options.
