Disappointed that I cannot use with alarm clock apps

I purchased this unit so I could charge my iPhone5 overnight and wake up to my iTunes music library in the morning. Trouble is that the unit shuts down after a period of idle time and doesn't "wake up" when the alarm goes off on the iPhone. Not only that, the iPhone thinks the speakers are "active", sends sound to the unit but no sound comes out ... So I sleep through my alarm. The docking unit is ok for charging and for listening to music BEFORE I go to sleep but that is not what I thought I bought so then the price tag does not appear so reasonable. Guess I'll have to wait for the other suppliers to come out with their docking stations for iPhone5.
I've been very patiently waiting for a new speaker dock to replace the one in my bedroom since I've upgraded to the iPhone 5 but I'm afraid I'm going to have to wait a bit longer. I liked the package, the sound and the overall design but one thing that I can't live with is the fact that my phone won't fit while the case is still on. I have a relatively thin case and the connector won't engage at all no matter how hard I try. Too bad as I had high hopes for this dock so it's going back to the store.
