Mike_Si just put it into 1st gear on 8thcivic
I had the same question for Honda when I got mine. What I was told is that the car does not arm right away. After the beep you have to wait a "minute" before you attempt to open the door. It will go off. The also knows if something is still open. It will locked the doors but not beep. Like a door, trunk or hood not being completely latched. Also, as far as I know rocking will not set of the alarm. I think that the trigger is the latches so nothing else is going to set it off.

Having said this, I have had mine broken into but not stolen and that damn alarm did not go off
