Default Alarm Clock not working

Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this problem when setting the alarm and it fails to go off at the required time ?

It happened to me last week, I set the alarm early for work but it failed to go off. Luckily for me I was already awake and thought I had set it wrong. I forgot all about it... Until this morning when it did the same again. I did a test on the alarm and set it go to off after a couple if minutes to test if it was working and it this time it went off properly.

Has anyone else had the same problem ?

Mine only works if the phone is turned on and isn't on Vibrate or Silent. Its a pain when you can't turn the phone off and still count on the Alarm to go off.

do you use a task killer??

killing the clock will result in the alarm not working.

Alarms should still sound even in "Silent" mode. See this thread.

You are right - the phone must be switched on in order for the alarm to work (it won't switch itself on in response for an alarm event like an ordinary cell phone) - the penalty of a phone which is more computer than phone

Yes I've had many failed alarms too.
I'm assuming that if I see a clock widget on my homescreen that the clock is active and working? Even if I use taskiller or equivalent??

I've never tried alarm with phone switched off. only sleep mode.
I've had 1 successful alarm call in 1 month!!!

Am gonna read that other thread.

OK think I sorted out my prob. It is by killing the 'clock' that I disable the alarm even though it says it's set to run with the little clock sign in top right.
Seeing the clock widget on the homescreen working doesn't mean the 'clock' app that the alarm needs is running.

So don't kill the clock = alarm goes off.

set alarm then kill clock = no alarm goes off.

rubbish but good to know!

Thanks for all the replies guys. It seems as jimeller rightly pointed out Taskiller is indeed the culprit. I really should of picked up on that earlier but I have only had the phone for a few weeks and I have been so busy installing apps that I really did'nt give it much thought. For anyone with a similar problem all I did was opened up Taskiller and held my finger on "Clock" until the options screen came up, once that happen I pressed "Ignore App". Since I have done this the alarm works as it should.

Many thanks for all the prompt replies

Why is this rubbish? If you kill the clock, it's features won't work.
That's just common sence.

Exactly.

Uninstalling task killers would solve most of the 'problems' that people post about on here

Seconded. If youre going to install a task killer then you should at least read up enough to understand what the tasks youre killing are doing.

If you called up windows task manager and started randomly killing processes left right and centre, would you be surprised if your PC stopped working?

If it were so obvious, this thread wouldn't be here.
Killing the clock in taskkiller doesn't stop the clock from working, nor it's widget, but it stops the alarm from going off whilst still keeping it's icon in the top right. How is that common sense?


anyway, thanks for the replies. This is a useful thread.

Default Seriously???

I think the original question/problem was answered a long time ago. Why do posters always have to go off subject and start an argument. What are we a bunch of iPhone users??

By mentioning this annoying characteristic that is common to many forums, I have added another response that in fact does not address the original problem but continues a separate discussion and for that I'm sorry.

Just thought I would get it out there that I did learn from all your posts that the task killer was the culprit except for the last few posts that went off on a tangent about what is or is not common sense. Thanks for posting btw.

Hello!

I have the same problem and I do not have Task killer installed so I guess it cannot be the culprit in my case, can it?

This morning my alarm didn't work and screen lock was on. If you go to settings/application/manage applications/clock you will find that this application should prevent phone from sleeping and disable keylock.

If anyone knows a way to fix this - please help. The phone is T-mobile G2 Touch (T-mobile version of HTC Hero).

Thanks

I have been using Hero for a few months now. In the beginning, I did have the "alarm don't go off" problem. Then I add the clock app to the ignore list of Advanced Task Killer and it seemingly solved the problem.

But recently I found the problem reappear again. This time, I found that if I turn on the screen at the time the alarm is supposed to go off, the alarm will come. But if I left the screen off instead, the alarm will not go off. If I restart the phone, everything will be fine. But sooner or later, the problem will appear again.

During on incidence, I checked the PID (process ID) of the clock app and found it to be a relatively large number (2xxx). Normally when you restart the phone, the clock app will be launched pretty early so a small PID should be assigned (2xx). A large PID implies the clock app is restarted somehow. Since I have it ignored by Advanced Task Killer, then it must have been killed by something else. I suspect it was killed by Android itself when the memory runs out. It is an automatic process if your memory level is too low.

This is my theory so far. I'm still trying to proof it. Any input is appreciated.

Hello!

I've tried disabling screen lock (settings/sound&display/screen timeout; set to "never timeout"). It draws more energy because your screen will always be on but it solved the problem for me. Alarm works when screen is unlocked.

I will disable screen lock when I go to sleep and enable it in the morning and that's it for me. If there is more elegant solution I will try it too.

Default screen lock? volume?

Hi folks,

Right.. I don't have "taskkiller" or anything like that .. so that's not the problem.

I love my new phone.. but this alarm thing is driving me nuts. this morning, it just didn't go off.. it really sucks

I'll try disabling the "screen lock" - another forum I read said you need to make sure that the volume is set to max when you set your alarm - I'll try that too..

The problem is... that all these things seem to work when you test them, but then the alarm still might not go off in the morning ... Bottom line is, you CAN'T trust it can you? If you can't rely on your alarm clock 100%, it's not useful as an alarm clock.

I'm seriously annoyed that twice this week i've been late for morning commitments - and I've only just got this phone last tuesday :-(

I'm going to start using my old phone for an alarm clock until I either sort this one out, or download an app that I can use instead -

any suggestions on a good alarm clock app?

Hi all,

I had a similar issue - had to travel early on a Sunday and the Hero alarm was the only thing I had. Turned out the smartphone was only as smart as the user...

It's set as standard for a 5 day working week, so it'll only sound on Monday - Friday, so it never went off on that Sunday. Luckily I somehow managed to wake up at 5am...

Doublecheck the 'repeat' settings. If in doubt, set it to 'never' ie: uncheck all the days. Then it'll sound the next time that time comes around only.

Does that help?

Hi guys.

Motorola Milestone, same prob this morning.

I just restarted the phone last thing before going to sleep last night, then set the alarm for 07:00.
Got up at 09:30...
Alarm time is still present, says it even on the lock screen:
(current time) Wed, 09:30
(alarm time) Wed, 07:00

It just did not go... as if it skipped that minute.

I dont own any taskiller app (except maybe Astro Filemanager)

Just gave it another try, alarm went off properly, even with screen locked.

Btw think I found an entry in Google Code bug reports on this... lets see if 2.1 fixes that.
Otherwise lets find a trusty alarm app...

I've had the situation where the time for the alarm has passed, I've pressed a button to turn the screen on, the lock screen appears and for a split second it will appear as a time before the alarm and then it will update straight away to the correct time, causing the alarm to go off.

I've not had it happen very often thankfully, and when it has happened, it's when I haven't rebooted the phone in a while. I do wish the phone* was more reliable in these sorts of things. Like last night, I lost my data connection - I just assumed it was a temporary thing. Woke up this morning, still not there; rebooted the phone and it was working fine. It'd only been on a for a few days, I don't think that's so unusual...

I don't have any task killers installed. I do have MCR 3.1 - does that include a task killer as part of its magic to improve the phone's performance?

* I say phone but with the milestone post above, maybe it's an OS problem

My solution to this problem was quite simple:
Buy Acctim Smartlite Alarm Clock. at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for .



Sorry, but, there's no way I'm gonna trust an alarm which maybe sortof kinda works. Imagine the scene when you come in late for work:

Boss: Why are you late?

Me: Because the alarm on my super-duper smart, Skynet-like phone which was as powerful as my previous laptop erm......didn't work.

Boss:

Simply not worth the potential hassle, IMO.

Ironic that this exact situation happened to me today and now I'm seeing this post. I woke up almost an hour and a half late when my wife got me up. I wasn't sure if the alarms didn't go off or if I slept through it.

Hello all,

I have the Cell South HTC Hero, same as the Sprint version, and my phone did the same thing the other day. I HAD taskiller installed, but removed it for other reasons. I noticed after I had uninstalled taskiller, the alarm didn't work. I set the alarm and waited for it to go off, and it did... BUT there was no sound or vibration. So after some playing around I went to the alarm clock, selected the alarm that I wanted, then tried to change my alarm sound. I then noticed that when I changed from one sound to another they didn't play, or make any noise. So while I had the alarm sound open I turned up the volume on the side.... Sure enough there is a volume for the alarm.. and it was all the way down. Don't know why?? but it was.. The alarm had worked in the past, but one day it stopped, and that's what I figured out. It has been working flawlessly ever since.

Hope this helps.

My problem is different... The alarm screen props up but no sound, and the screen crashes! There is no way to get out of the alarm screen except by removing the battery!

anyone else encounter this??

This morning I heard the phone VIBRATING! No sound. I didn't set alarm sound to vibrate, just ringtone sound.
Luckily, it was enough to wake me up but bottom line - you can't trust this phone for alarm. I'm getting old school alarm clock.

Thanks for posting the quesion and thanks for the answer.
I am new to Andriod - i am a windows developer, so am still a virgin to andriod.

I did not get TaskKiller with my HTC Desire but i was aware of it whilst using my HTC Touch2(windows mobile) so when i got my desire i auto remembered to install taskkiller works a treat but did not click that killing clock and still seing it on the home page would not allow the alarm to go off.

as you say it makes sense, kill the app and it wont work.

ignoring the clock app in task killer is excellent as it wont be accidentally deleted.

Great help, I have more questions about my andriod HTC desire phone, anyone up for a chat?
kind regards
Paul

Cool

I have analyzed the problem on my Milestone with Android 2.1:
* Only the preinstalled alarm clock is affected. Other clocks (like free Alarm Klock) work.
* it shows up only in 24h setting. In 12h mode, the preinstalled clock works.
* It does not show up while the display is on
* If the display goes to sleep, and the alert is set to some x minutes in the future, the device will wake up and ring 2 times x minutes in the future.
* when the instrument is activated before that, it will update the time; if it is already after the x minutes, it will ring immediately;
* if it is woken before the scheduled time, it will not ring, update the time, and sleep twice the remaining time again when the instrument goes sleep again.

No reason to blame task killers. Just a plain software bug.

In the last week 2 days the Alarm Klock alarm has failed to sound... when I wake the phone some minutes later (I'm using as a backup my old cel alarm), the alarm then goes on...

so the problem also happens with Alarm Klock at least.


PS: I also have milestone running 2.1 (2.1-1update)

Bad to hear that. Do you use the 12-hours setting? Can you try it?

is there any fix for this?? it's extremely annoying to wake up in the morning, about half an hour after the alarm should have gone off!!
seems to be no specific thing causing this on my hero, some days there's no problem, then one day in 5 it won't go off!
no task killer on my handset to blame
have tried various things, 12h vs24h
on charger/off charger
automatic updates to time on and off

nothing makes any difference, i wake up late, lean over to see what time it is and the screen of the hero will say a random time in the middle of the night, then update to the correct time, after the alarm should have gone off!! this is a very very basic function on a mobile phone, my first nokia 10+ years ago had this feature and worked!!

android seems pretty decent, although i'm starting to think htc isn't! this phone has lots of issues - but a clock that doesn't work is ridiculous!

I've had alarms fail in various phone states both with & without task killers (added clock to ignore list)

Got so fed up with it and late for work so many times that i got myself down to ASDA and got a 4.99 radio alarm clock.
Best move i ever made, phone never woke me up to fat boy Moyles, when it ever bothered to get me up at all !

I had this problem where I didn’t have any sound on some of my alarms and when I change the volume or tone of the alarms that do work then this makes them disabled (just vibrate and no tones). I had realised that the sound had change to "media volume" when I was trying to increase the volume. So I cleared all the data from the application storage. And now I have tested it again and had to increase the volume (because the volume was set to 0 at first) and is now back to "ring volume" and works fine.

if you use advance task killer or any other task killer program, make sure it doesnt close the clock app, thats what happened to me and it never sounded in the morning, but now its all fine and dandy
