    I have spoken with Motorola about the brightness of the clock and they are forwarding this to the engineer staff. Even on night setting it is too bright for some people.

    Yes I did. This can be fixed in software probably fairly easy.

    The buttons on the bottom (right side when docked) need to be turned off when the phone is docked and on night mode. Activate the buttons if I touch the screen.

    I agree. Again this should be doable in software.

    This doesn't really solve the problem, but there's a program called bedside in market free I think, or maybe .99... anyways, it will allow you to adjust color brghtness and font, along with a host of other settings. You can long press screen on the time display and it will speak the time.

    When I go to sleep, I press the top (left side when docked) to turn off the whole display when in the dock.

    I also have to go into the gmail settings to turn off email notifications, cause the green blinking light sucks to wake up to at 3 am...

    Any decent solution to this yet? This is one alarm clock in night mode that lights up the night.

    I agree with the OP. Way too bright. Needs to be a few different settings added in.

    I just noticed the other night that those 4 buttons will shut off [on mine anyways, yours may be different] if the light in the room is bright enough. As soon as it goes dark, they turn back on. Although I tried covering them up and it doesn't make much of a difference in the overall level of brightness. Still far too bright.

    I agree on the brightness!

    I'm also worried about burn-in, or is my age showing....? Maybe newer devices don't have that issue any more.

    No need to worry about burn-in. Burn-in is not an issue with LED based displays.

    The brightness dosent bother me, I sleep very hard.
    But the font is a bit too small and not sharp enough.

    I wear fairly strong glasses and have a really hard time seeing the clock even though it's fairly close. My alarm clock was far easier to see from the same distance.

    Hopefully in 2.1 some of these "features" will be customizable
