Um…why? This sounds like one of those "there's probably something better except you're not saying what you're actually trying to do" situations. – Su' Nov 22 '12 at 13:09
This reminds of the 90's, dialup 28.8k and mouse moving programs. – Anagio Nov 25 '12 at 7:01

http://phantomjs.org/ This will provide all you need!

You could also use a ping service such as Pingdom.

Any site monitoring application will probably do well for this. The problem of using your system tray is that your windows system could go down. You could setup a cron job on an inexpensive linux server just to wget a page every 15 seconds.
