    It would be really easy to do with a MCU like one of the Microchip PICs.

    You could even have a display and a real clock as opposed to just a timer.

    You would be able to set your snooze time, max times you can press snooze, all kind of options.

    I don't understand exactly what you whant to do..
    Are you planning to make an alarm clock?

    If so it is better You do it with a microcontroller.

    my idea is to connect the timer to a motor and the motor will operate on the time that has been set on the timer....the snooze will only works maximum 3 times after snooze button is pressed...thats what im planning to do...

    Definite MCU application. You will even be able to control the speed of the motor if you want.
