Free Eye Rest and Break Reminder

Rest Reminder is a small utility which i wrote long time back to monitor computer activity and reminds me to take rest after every 30 minutes. I wrote this because once i start working i forget about everything else and this lead to dry eyes, irritation etc.This is the second version supporting Multiple monitors, Alpha Transparent block screen and Vista Compatible.

Unlike most such utilities this is free. You can specify after how much time of activity you want to take rest and for how long. And how long of inactivity will reset this time. This also comes facility to lock screen quickly or when there is a certain inactivity period.

Usage is very simple , Download and extract the program and then run the RestReminder.exe . After that configure the settings and press Apply to save changes. Press the close/hide button and let it go in the task bar.

  • This software just meets my need. It is small and doesn’t need to be installed.

  • When I close it and run it a second time, it locks my screen time and time again, and says “-1 seconds before rest”. Can you reproduce this thing? Is that a BUG?

    • I could not reproduce the bug , What settings are you using ?.

      • My OS: Windows XP Professional SP3
        My Settings:
        Check “Ergomic Rest”
        Rest Every ’45′ Minutes
        Rest For ’5′ Minutes
        Reset timeout ’5′ Minutes
        Steps to reproduce this problem at my machine:
        1. Check the aboving settings.
        2. Exit this software or just exit Windows.
        3. Restart this software (after restart Windows). It will lock my screen soon. If I ‘break’ it or wait for the ending of rest time, it will lock my screen soon again. Its interface shows “-1 seconds before rest” which does no change at all.

        Now, in order to avoid this problem, I have to use a BAT file to uncheck ‘Ergomic Rest’ first, and then start it and check it manually. The rough BAT file is like this:

        reg add “HKEY_USERS\S-X-X-XX-xxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx-xxxx\Software\Rest Reminder” /v “ergo” /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000 /f
        start RestReminder.exe

        I hope these information can help you to solve it, because I really like this software. Thanks!

  • This is quite a hot info. I’ll share it on Digg.

  • Hi Vikas,

    This is the one I was looking for and I am very happy to have this. Thanks a lot. It works fine with my windows XP sp2 system. I have just downloaded and play with it and not found any issue as of now.

    About issue that Sun Guodong is facing, I suggest him to have reset timeout lower than rest time. (otherwise it doesn’t solve the objective of software if you can break the rest anytime.)

    wish you good luck.

  • Yes the bug is there. Same -1 second issue and as soon as I run it, the rest alert with the darkened screen starts getting executed and you can no longer work. It gets into an indefinite loop! The only way out left is to somehow hit the exit button first by breaking the msg box.

    Pls debug it as early as possible…

  • that’s what i exactly need

  • This is great but I have 2 little pointless niggles …

    1: The fact the break/rest box moves around the screen :(
    2: Shore is spelt sure ;)

  • I spend most of my day coding so this is an essential tool for me. Love the program, but agree with Some)ne, please stop the rest box moving around the screen and correct ‘Shore’ to ‘sure’.

    Either that or send me the source code and I’ll compile my own version :) . Otherwise thanks for a great program, seems to work fine on Windows 7.

  • just tested and seems to work fine on win 7.
    thanks for this.

    exactly what i needed.
    simple to use and no fuss.

    but i have to agree with the jumping around of the popup.
    would be great to be able to turn that off.


  • Awesome program, thanks a lot for sharing! I use it at work for taking breaks from my laptop.

  • Thanks a lot for this fabulous software. I was desperately in need of this :) However, it would be great if you turn off the moving popup box which shows the time. Also the another confirmation box use the word “Shore” instead of “sure”. :) I hope you will not mind it to update your marvelous software. :)

  • Thank you for making a useful program. Works well. :)

  • cool! thx so muchh!!!

  • For anyone having an issue with the ‘-1 seconds’ and infinite loop of rests, make sure the Rest Reminder window is open and then do the following: When the ‘Are you really shore?’ popup appears, strategically position the popup so that its ‘yes’ button aligns with the ‘Apply’ button on the window behind. Now click your left mouse button twice in quick succession to click the ‘Apply’ button before the next rest pops up. If you did this correctly, the -1 seconds will be reset to the rest time, and you can once again use the program as usual. Do this every time you encounter this bug.

    And Vikas, thank you for providing this software for free, and great job on the design. It does exactly what I want it to.

  • Thanks, I am having the same problem as you. This is just awesome!

  • How can you uninstall this program?

  • Thank you very much for this.

    Are you really really shore? Awesome, Lol.

  • Great program. For the next release, would it be possible to have seconds as well, not just minutes? Thanks!

  • It’s good.
    The only thing i don’t like is the break pop-up: very intrusive.

  • Thanks for this great tool.

  • What does “reset timeout” do?

    I thought it was the time from when the rest begins to when the “minutes before rest” is reset. If this were true, then if I set Rest every to 3, rest for to 2 and reset timeout to 1, then when my rest is over, there should be 2 minutes remaining before my next rest. This didn’t happen. What does it do?

  • Great little program!
    But I also don’t understand what “Reset timeout” means.

  • Hi. I believe there is some thing wrong with your links. I hope you can repair it!

  • When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!

  • Everyone should just get elgg and build their own social site at home. It isn’t that hard. Then no more security or privacy problems. Your server your site. That is what the internet was supposed to be anyway. When it was originally invented. Long before Gore fouled it up.cccc

  • Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  • Why don’t you compile it for Linux?

  • A person essentially assist to make significantly posts I’d state.
    This is the first time I frequented your web page and to
    this point? I amazed with the research you
    made to make this actual put up amazing. Wonderful task!

  • Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, amazing blog!

  • I’m extremely impressed together with your writing skills and also with the layout in your blog.
    Is this a paid topic or did you modify it your self?
    Either way stay up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great
    blog like this one these days..
