Time Delay on the Touch and Alarm

My Touch has had the time delay issue since day 1. When I turn the screen on it takes it a split second to update the time. This was never really an issue until I started using the alarm.

The alarm works correctly about 80% of the time. About 20% of the time since the clock doesn't refresh the alarm doesn't go off. Once it hits the time that the alarm is supposed to go off I can turn the screen on and it will then sound.

Is there anything out there that will help with this?

I'm on the orginal OEM Rom.

There's a couple things, under home you can set the home screen timeout and it will update the clock based on that, set it to one hour and hope it works. I haven't had any issues with the 6.1 update since the first leaked rom so you could try that.

I use my phone as my wakeup alarm so I just set it to not turn the screen off when plugged in to make sure it goes off.
Self employed and loving it as of 12/13/08.
