    Any help is gratefull!!

    I presume that the phone is on and that you're not using a task killer app? Do you get the same thing if you use a 3rd part alarm from the market (by the way, these are much better than the built-in one)

    I do use advanced task killer but that doesn't affect the alarm clock. Also yes the phone is on just asleep obviously (screen not on)

    Don't use advanced task killer - you don't need a task killer as Android is designed to handle that stuff itself. I suggest you uninstall it and then see if the alarm goes off as expected. When I first had my phone (before I was aware of the task killer issue) I'd seen advanced task killer recommended and used it for one day - found out it was bad the same way you did...

    okay it appears that advanced task killer was killing it! not used to that as before on my g1 i just used taskiller and that never affected the alarm clock!

    If it now handles the apps itself why when i click on kill apps does it kill say 3 or 4 apps?

    If using task killer "ignore" the clock app. After doing this had no problem with the alarm.

    Just don't use it. then it kills nothing. Waste of time and resources IMO.

    I think it's a great thing to have in case an app is playing up or something, but just be sure not to kill the clock application.

    I've not used a task killer. Just use the inbuilt running apps within settings and kill the apps needed within that.

    I agree that sometimes an app (technical terminology coming up) gets itself in a tiz and needs to be killed. But rather than using a task manager application to do this (which constantly monitors, increasing battery usage), use something like astro file manager, which has this feature built in?

    I have built in Task managers in Astro file manager and also in system Panel (which is an extremely useful app too btw)..

    Edit> plus what Jay_Kay says ;)

    I just had an alarm clock issue with my Droid this morning. It just plain didn't go off. I've had my Droid since February, and have had advanced task killer since the day I got the phone and it has never once interfered with my alarm clock.

    Woke up this morning (Tuesday) at 645am, and the lock screen still read that the next alarm was "Tues 6:00am." I added the alarm clock to the ignore list in task killer as someone above suggested, hopefully this fixes the problem.
