I know nothing about python either.....  But the comments of others has
got me to ....

import time
import os

not_executed = 1

while(not_executed):
        dt = list(time.localtime(time.time()))
        hour = dt[3]
minute = dt[4]
if hour == 5 and minute == 45:
        os.popen2("open /Users/jun/shout.mp3")
not_executed = 0


I added a "tab" to Lines 7 and 8 as well as a closing ) on Line 7.  Note
that blank lines are counted.
Line 11 also has a tab added.  Hope that helps...and I hope my
formatting survives.
