Notsure Alarm clock not working Samsung Galaxy S4

I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I've only had my phone for two months and all of a sudden my alarm clock has stopped working.

It looks like the phone goes into sleep mode. The reason I say so is because once unlock the phone it takes a while for the phone to update the time. For example i set my alarm for 7am. At 7.05am the alarm still has still not gone off and the time on the home screen will read 2.30 (depending on the time the phone goes to sleep). Once i unlock my phone and click on an app such as weather it will update to the current time. Has this happened anyone. I also suspect that the flip case could also be why the phone goes in sleep mode.

Any help will be appreciated.

I haven't heard of that.

If power saving / cpu power saving mode is turned on, maybe try turning that off?

Maybe you have frozen or disabled a related system app? Long shot ... I know

I have similar problem on my new pad and Googling can't find any reference to it.

Apps which should run in the background are just stopping in sleep mode. Put the screen back on and suddenly the alarm goes off.

I got a new pad out of the box fully charged two days ago. Ran it all day, installed medigong, bodhi timer, insight timer and an alarm clock app. All these worked as expected for the first day, but seller advised a system restore/recharging as the tablet failed to start a couple of times. I then installed the same apps and they only work if I completely disable sleep mode (ie have screen on all the time). Done a couple more restores and charges, changed loads of system settings but still same problem.

Could it be a recent update? My system says it's completely upto date. Or are sleep mode problems common?

It sound like something with settings. Are you guys using any kind of Advance Task Killer? If so, uninstall it and see if the problem goes away. Also, make sure the app isn't on the "Turned off" list.

I'm using the alarm that's part of the clock app that comes on the phone. I check it before I go to sleep at night, and it says the alarm is set to go at 6:55am the next morning. I wake up at 7:30, and the alarm hasn't gone off - and when I check it, in the settings it appears to have gone onto Snooze mode (it's yellow with a Zzzz next to it instead of green. Turned off is grey.) I'm about to try recreating it and see if that works tomorrow morning or not. Does anyone else have any hints?

Yesterday morning I was late for work as the EXACT same thing happened. This morning I was up before.my alarm so I waited and all that happened was my phone screen lit up and the clock icon was in the top bar...when I unlocked my phone the screen was black and not.responding and then came up with the 'clock is not responding' notification. I reset my phone then went into settings>application manager>running and pressed stop on clock and alarm. Did a test alarm and went off as usual so.hopefully fixed. Hope this works for you
