Hmm. Ok. I did some more testing and I learned that if I wasn't doing something with the running script ie moving the mouse over the window, clicking buttons, etc then the ALRM never triggered. This was one of the reasons I associated the wallclock seconds with clock cycles associated with the application vs general clock cycles.
