Option to do nothing.

Registered by agenthex on 2009-02-09

Instead of forcing a user to select a sound file or launch an application, allow the user to set the alarm to do nothing. The "time remaining" feature of the applet is very useful for clock-watchers, and the requirement that the applet perform some task upon the trigger of an alarm is sometimes unwanted.

Whiteboard

Future versions of Alarm Clock will not have the alarm label (as it's being moved to the notification area). Thus there is no longer a reason to include an option to do nothing..? A workaround would be to set the command to /bin/false...
