    Alarm in Sleep Mode

    Is it possible to set an alarm to go off when the X is in Sleep Mode? Or can alarms only go off when the phone is on (awake)?

    Unless the phone is turned off, I'm pretty sure the alarm will work regardless of the state....just like a phone call.

    Whenever you press the power button the phone goes into 'sleep mode.' I don't own a DroidX yet so my terminology may be a little off.

    Again, since I don't have the phone I'm probably using the wrong words, but whenever you just press the power button (not long press). I'm calling that state 'sleep mode'.

    that is just turning the display off and locking the screen. in that case, even the stock alarm should work, but again check this out Alarm Clock PlusV1

    The stock alarm works fine when the phone is in sleep mode. The phone turns off the screen if you have no activity for a set amount of time OR if you manually short press the power button.

    As someone else mentioned, it's just like a phone call will wake up the phone (display turns on, phone rings and/or vibrates), the alarm does the same thing.

    While you should check out alternate apps, the stock alarm that is in 2.2 works fine for me. (I don't remember if I used it in 2.1, I think it's the same).

    It has a "get louder" option that starts the sound reasonably quiet, then turns up the volume the longer you ignore it. With a good ringtone (high energy music), it works really well. I have mine set to vibrate also, and the combination would be extremely difficult to ignore.
