For now there is a dark cheating code: you may suspend the phone, then
it will wake up on the next alarm (it works with default configuration,
but somehow not if you change the player to mplayer, the next alarm will
give no sound, at least on shr-unstable).

I consider silenting the alarm for, let say, 5 seconds after touching
any of the four buttons or the LED clock.  I think the puzzle assures
you turn off the alarm by conscious decision (but little training makes
it no harder for me than hitting the snooze button :), unless you need
glasses of course) and not by accidental touching the screen in the
pocket, and silenting the alarm will make it even more so, because there
will be no pressure to turn it off as soon as possible to avoid making
