Well, the new radio set-up only woke me up because I was SO CONFUSED I had to get up and try to figure out what the hell was going on...
Instead of playing the MP3s for an hour, the damn thing played them for a minute or so, then started beeping the alarm, then BOTH the sound and the beeping went away when I hit the "sleep" button. Then one or the other came back, after about nine minutes (I am unsure about the details as I was mostly asleep.)
I reset the entire thing and tested it again while slightly more awake. Same thing. Further investigation was suspended due to a Comics Crisis! (One of the other clerks was sick.)
The BF has been asked to investigate tomorrow. Hopefully that will happen between starting the Turkey and the submersion into Feast Creation Time, but it may occur after the Great Gluttony. (I'm hoping there's a setting on the damn clock-portion that I didn't notice.)
If that fails, my plan is to shoot the alarm clock thinger-part with a large gun.
Um, I mean, call the manufacturer and ask them to explain themselves (after the holiday).
Then I'll return it, get the BF's money back, and rig my laptop to be my new alarm clock. I WILL LEARN TO WRITE CODE IF I HAVE TO BECAUSE I WILL NOT BE DETERRED!
DO YA HEAR ME, YA FREAKIN' CHAOS GODS? NOT! DETERRED!
Stupid technology is failing me.
