Using Sunbird 0.8pre (20071215) closing the dialog now silently snoozes all reminders still shown in the dialog. 
This behavior was probably introduced with Bug 341576.
Depends on: 341576
Christian will be thinking about how this should best be solved. I'm not sure what is meant with "alarm window state persistance".

IMHO a good and reasonable solution would be to just autosnooze in 1 second, or maybe 1 minute...

It would assure the visibility of the same alarms on next startup or after restart - I would agree to not care about the state of the dialog (minimized, item order, ...) - the main goal is to be reminded to the remaining alarms!

Does the "alarm window state persistance" means that the alarm window would reappear on closing and restarting?
