What OS do you use for your slimserver? It's pretty easy to do
this with a scheduler like cron and the server's command line
interface. If you're on linux or other unix-like OS let me
know and I'll send you some scripts to get you started.

You can also use the Alarm Plugin which allows you to install it multiple times
(with a couple edits) and run multiple alarms, all set for either 7 day,
weekends only, or weekdays only. pre-edited versions for 2 alarms are
downloadable here:
