I have written a program that pops up a box and plays a sound at a user specified time. I would also like to have the applications taskbar button blink, similiar to what msn messenger does. Is there any way to do this in Java?

Thanks I'll have to give that a try tonight. I also found this http://today.java.net/pub/a/today/2003/12/08/swing.htm under the Native user alerts for windows section. It looks like it is possible using JNI.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
