Make an alert-if-active mode for certain wireless alerts

Wireless alerts are potentially life saving, but not every alert should wake the dead (e.g., a 4am Amber alert which only a miniscule portion of area subscribers can act upon). And cell phone users should have more flexibility than turning them off.

 

Here's an idea: for lower-level alerts (e.g., Amber alerts), the unit should ONLY buzz if it's been used or otherwise moved in the last minute. The alert will display upon people waking up -- and not the other way around.
