I have iCal events set up on my Mac Mini to give me a message only (no sound) a few days ahead of the event. iCal is synchronized with my iPod Touch, and the reminders for these events produce an alert sound, which I do not want, especially since the default time for the alert is midnight. I realize that I can turn off the iPod alert sounds, but then I will not get alerts for the events where I really want a sound (i.e. when I have asked for a message plus alarm sound in iCal).
Is there a way to turn off the iPod alert sound only when iCal does not call for an alert sound?
Failing that, is it possible to reset the iCal default alert time to a more civilized hour?
