    If you are using WOL your issue probably lies there.

    You could do some tests and watch what happens to your Mac before an alarm goes off. It should stay on after wake up but if it is not then maybe a settings change would force it to stay on. Or you could buy a Pi and run it 24/7.

    I don't have a Touch to test this with ... but can you use a URL to a radio stream that the Touch can play without it having to use LMS to either resolve the details or transcode?
    e.g. http://stream.dandelionradio.com:9414

    I have found the Touch to be a bit unnerving as an alarm device. It will do the job, but if I snooze it or turn off the alarm (the two display choices) on the Touch itself, it will go and play some annoying built-in melody until I go to LMS and turn the alarm off. I have since switched to a Boom for alarm duty, and it performs as designed.
