FS#5533 - Simple Alarm Clock Plugin

Ported to iPod as workaround until native clock wakeup support.

Alarm Plugin by Ivo Burkart

This comes with no warranty…….
….so don’t blame me if you sleep over :-)


Outside the Plugin:
I recommend keeping the Jukebox plugged to Power, even if it should last over 15 hours in “Waiting”-Mode
Check, if your Jukeboxes time is set correctly.

Steps to set wake-up:
-First play a Song, you want to be woke up with
-Start the Plugin (best via menu → browse plugins → alarm
-Set your desired Wake time
-Go to sleep
-Wake up
-Stop Alarm Plugin by pressing OFF

Usage of Plugin:
Set the wake time with the Cursor-Pad
With holding the Play-Key and pressing F1-F3 you can save the current wake-up-time to the specific function-key. Load it by just pressing F1-F3.
When in “Alarm” Mode, you can press the Play-Button for Snooze-Function. This will set back to “Waiting” mode and set wake time to current time + 5 Minutes.
Note: On iPod there is only one memory space. The Play/Pause-Button serves like F1 and the Select like Play

How does it work?
After start the plugin pauses current song (if not already paused). If no song is playing a play command will be executed. This usually starts the last Song you played.
It sets itself to Waiting mode.
When alarm-time is reached it starts playing and sets itself to “Alarm” Mode
