Clicking on flashing icon should bring up list instead of snoozing (at least optionally)

Bug Description

Sometimes I come back to my computer after leaving it for a bit to find the Alarm Clock icon flashing. Naturally I left-click on it to see what I missed, except that doing this snoozes all the alarms I missed. I'd prefer left-clicking to bring up the list to show me what I missed - I generally expect left-clicking an active icon to show me what it's blinking/active about, not perform an action.

Other people may work differently, so maybe this could be a Preference setting? "When alarm icon is active clicking it a. snoozes alarm b. shows alarm list."

Thanks for a great app!

Good point, this is something worth considering for the next release. I'll see if I can get some thoughts on this from a usability perspective...
