alarm clock on lockscreen?

    I recently moved from my Optimus V running CM7 to this Evo V running Harmonia. I love the new phone so far, but I'm a bit noobish when it comes to Android UI customizations and completely new to Sense UI, so I'm not sure how to fix this:

    On my old phone, when I set an alarm, the lockscreen would show the date and time of the next upcoming alarm. On my new phone, it doesn't. I've tried a few different alarm-setting apps, and none of them put anything on the lockscreen or have any settings options to do so.

    Simply put: how can I get that alarm info to show up on my lockscreen?

    Cool. So this would purely be a matter of the lockscreen I'm using, right, and not the alarm app itself? Alarms get registered at the system level, some lockscreens have the feature to ask the system when the next one is and display that info, but my current one does not - is that about right?

    You can also put the phone into dock mode and the alarm clock will be available.

    would dock mode keep the screen on and chew up battery life. when the lockscreen will turn on on command.
