What I really want for Ical is
Authored by: SOX on Feb 25, '08 10:04:44AM

when an alarm goes off, say it was set to 1 hour before the meeting, it allows me to be reminded in 15 minutes or 30 minutes etc... like a cheap snooze alarm.

What I really want is for it to offer me the opportunity to have the alarm go off 5 minutes before the meeting. that is I want a snooze relative to the meeting time not relative to the current time when I see the alarm.

The purpose of the alarm was to tell me to prepare for the meeting. I don't really care when exactly I notice the alarm. But I want a reminder a few minutes before the meeting to tell me to go to it.

you can add a second alarm (and more than that, too). In iCal, right click on the alarm section in the info pane of the event and add another alarm for 5 minutes before the event.
