I am looking for the tray-minimizable program, which sends an HTTP request to my server each 15 seconds immitating user activity.

    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.

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.


This is a pretty popular service to monitor your websites uptime. https://www.pingdom.com/
