    Did you know - when an alarm goes off, the pause button acts as a snooze button.

    The amount of time to snooze is configurable through the My Alarm setup screen in the MP configuration.

    My 2 year daughter showed me I can fullscreen DVD playback by using the scroll wheel on my mouse!
    My kids are always finding undocumented features like that! hahaha :D

    (Well OK, maybe it is documented somewhere but I haven't seen it.)
