    Well I used Night Clock + App Alarm last night and it didn't go off this morning. When I woke up 8 minutes late there was a message to snooze or dismiss but no sound.

    Take the magnet out of the dock?

    I am going to try to remove the magnet - my theory is that the Droid will still charge but the screen will dim and the 4m lights will go out. If it's set to "Stay on during charging" the main screen will stayon = then we can use night clock or whatever.

    Any opinion on this?

    I updated to the clock on the first page, as I'm having the same problem with it illuminating the entire damn room. This updated one is much dimmer, my guess is it'll do the trick.

    What I don't like is there is no weather on the new version. Anyway to get weather to work with the new clock?

    Thanks in advance!

    Download an app Bedside v2.0 - much better than the stock dock app. It's much dimmer, and works well. No weather, but I don't care about that. you can set it so you can toggle between Bedside or the traditional docked screen.

    The only annoyance is still those four lights on the side (menu, back, etc.) that stay light. I did the cardboard trick and it works fine!

    Last night I figured out how to turn off those 4 icon lights while in Dock mode. Completely turn off the phone. Pop the phone into the dock and let it reboot itself. At least for my Moto Droid, the 4 lights stay off until I remove it from the dock cradle. I also use Bedside.
    Before, I was using painters tape to hide those annoying bright lights.

    Try it.

    I know this is way old, but... *IF* you're rooted, there's an app now called "LEDs hack" that can turn off the 4 soft buttons. And yes, they are independent of the screen brightness.

    Been using it for a few weeks; works fine for me.
