    Dumb question - but I was fooling with my friends iPod nano and noticed that under the alarms, you can set it to play music from a playlist when the time reaches the time you set the alarm for.

    I always wanted to use my iPod touch (1G) as an alarm, but because it only has a beeper I only get 3 different "beeps" that I can wake up to. Not good. So I never used it. I thought that there wasn't a away to play music because there is not speaker. But then when I realized that a nano (that also does not have a speaker) could do this - I began to wonder...

    Why can't my iPod touch wake me up to music??

    I just don't get it. Obviously I would need the iPod docked to speakers to be able to hear the music, but thats no problem - its just the fact that there is NO option to select the song or playlist that I wasn't to wake up to.

    Any one else notice this? Anyone know why it is this way? Could there be a 3rd party app that could do this?

    Thanks for any info anyone could provide!

    yes it would definitely be nice, even on the 2g (which has speakers built in), there is no option for it.... sucks.... hopefully it will be in a future update...

    Or.. Do what I did and buy an iHome (Flip and Watch) it's for the iPod touch and has a wake to music funtion. It's an awsome alarm clock.
