    Sounds like there are extraneous screen taps for some reason, rather than a problem with alarm apps. It happened on my N4 a few times, and the time switching to 24h happened often when I disabled the screen lock and random screen taps occurred while in my pocket.

    Have you noticed any slow downs? Maybe something wet on the screen (drool?!)

    Correct ..it acts there are screen taps but I am touching nothing. It definitely has not been wet.

    Install a screen touch app - one that shows where you're touching the screen. Then put the phone down and watch it for a while. If it's being "touched", either the touchscreen or the motherboard is defective (or you have a weird software bug).

    Good call on that

    You can also view screen touches without an app if you enable developer options. In settings>about phone, tap build number a bunch of times until it says you're a developer. Then hit back to find dev options in system settings, look for the view screen touches there

    for those that have helped and those that are curious I guess this can be a common symptom when using a wall charger. freaking weird....but I kept it off the wall charger and all is good...

    That is strange, mine is on mains charge every night all night and my alarm goes off daily without any issues.

    I finally isolated the problem and it turns out that a wall charger can cause issues like this. I have charged it up and left it off charge and not one issue.

    I hope this helps at least one person because it has driven me crazy.... Now if I can only solve why the Google newstand is severly broke on my N10..
