    I have the original Motorola Droid. When a notification for a calendar event, a text message, a chat message, etc. occurs, it plays the sound you've chosen once. How do you get it to repeat the sound until you turn it off? If I'm not right next to my Droid I often don't hear the initial sound. A repeating alarm/notification would be useful. Is there a way through the Droid OS or a separate app that would allow the user to repeat notifications/alarms? Thanks for your help in advance.

    I believe it sleeps for 5 minutes and then replays the alert again.

    What you might want to do is use ringdroid and make a custom alert from an mp3 file. You can make that for as long as you like and that will play for a longer time.
