Has anyone discovered a program to run on a PC during an 
upgrade/PTF/long AS/400 program run that would beep (and send a 
message to a pager) (or at least be able to run a program) when the screen 
changes for any reason.  I've found (for lots of years) it's a waste of 
time to sit and stair at a screen waiting for the enter key to be hit during 
an installation of OS/400.  It would of course be nice for IBM to 
incorporate this function into the upgrade process but I guess they must 
like to sit for hours and watch the screen.  I would really like to find a 
simple PC program that could play a wave file and call a program so I 
could have it send a message to a pager if I wasn't right in front of the 
PC.  I know sending a numeric message to a pager can be done in a simple 
BAT file.
