Hi, and thx for a great programm.

Would it be possible to add a feature, that would allow to delay alarm for disconnected A/C, so that alarm would only sound if power is disconnected and doesn't return within a given amount of seconds. I use iAlertU in a train, where motion sensor might tricker the alarm for nothing (due to the train moving) and power is often cut for a few seconds, but a longer loss of power signals that the plug has been disconnected (and therefore somebody is trying to move the MacBook).

In my opinion a perfect solution would be to allow a delayed alarm, so that a short break in power wouldn't trigger the alarm, but if the power is disconnected for more than say a few seconds, an alarm would sound.

    I can't decide what would be a good sollution to this very exceptional case. Personally, I wouldn't ever leave my macbook unattended in a train. Not even with iAlertU .. we all know you can plug in a pair of headphones ... I would buy a security lock and attach it to a seat or something.
