I've tried them both in RockBox v2.2. They both work, but when you set
the wakeup alarm it immediately shuts the Jukebox off. If you then turn
the Jukebox back on, it un-sets the alarm, so you can't listen to the
Jukebox as you fall asleep and then have it wake you up. I have no
problems with the sleep timer. You choose how long it plays (not what
time it shuts off, though) in 15 minute increments and it turns itself
off at the end of that time period.
I think the alarm just starts playing wherever the last bookmark was set
at whatever volume it was last set at.
