Default Help with alarm (or reccomend me a new alarm app)

I am currently using HTC's default alarm app, but I'm finding the alarm tone won't repeat and it will only ring out once, for say 3-4 seconds, and none of the tones seem to be any longer.

This is an issue for a heavy sleeper like me as I can often sleep though this and I'm partial to the odd snooze so there might 3 or 4 chances for me to do this! .

Anyone found a way to keep the alarm ringing out (repeating) till I turn it off. I'm using Dutty's ROM so I I'm not sure whether this is just a quirk of his ROM or just a crap alarm from HTC.

Help or reccomendations of good alarm apps welcome!

the main thing i have found since using 6.5.x build roms is that the repeat problem no longer occurs. It repeats until you stop it.

One suggestion i can offer is to forget about setting up the alarms through the htc alarms tab, do them direct into settings - menu - all settings - clocks and alarms.

you will find 1 - there are more alarm sounds available, (which tells me the HTC alarms tab isn't working exactly the same as the system one)
and
2 - the HTC alarms tab will copy what you put in the system alarms screen, BUT setting directly into the HTC alarms doesnt always copy through to the system alarms tab.

I have "Alarm-Light" selected as my alarm tone, and the thing doesn't shut up until I've stopped it.
