I want my alarm clock fade to black, but when I touch the screen will display the time. I want to this feature at night when my clock is charging on my nightstand. Is there a way to achieve this type of feature?

That's what I'm doing with my "good old Droid²" which serves as nightstand. You can even define how bright that clock should be (it has a special "night mode"). That way you're totally free to use the alarm clock of your choice.
