Hey, I did a search, but I still can't find how to make the alarm play music instead of those annoying and too quiet beeping sounds. I don't mean using the speaker built into the ipod; I want the iPod to automatically turn on at a certain time and play a specific song, album, or playlist that I have. My external speakers don't have an alarm function built in like the iHome, or I would just use that, but when I had the 30 GB iPod photo, it would wake me up every morning with music, which was great. The other thing it had was a sleep function, so that I could leave it playing and it would automatically turn off after a certain amount of time. This doesn't seem like it would be that hard to do.. if anyone could make a mod for the clock app to do this, that would be awesome, and I don't have much programming skills, but if someone could point me in the right direction I'd be happy to try to make the mod myself. Thanks for any feedback.
