    Hi,

    Just a quick question. I have KitKat and use the default Alarm app to wake me up every morning. The only niggle I have with it is, after I slide the marker to Snooze it wakes up the homescreen on the phone (which lights up the room) and I then have to press the button on the side to put it back to sleep.

    Is there a way to set it so, upon Snoozing, it just goes back to sleep automatically?

    I did have Alarm Clock Plus but it did the same thing.

    It's a minor thing but it annoys me a little every morning!

    Thanks
    Mark

    I do use the Alarm quite a lot on my phone, when it goes off I just say " Stop" quite loud! and it switches off........

    Ahh, I work unsociable hours though and I don't think my partner would appreciate that! :) Thanks though.

    Depends on what phone you have, some phones allow you to snooze the alarm by turning the phone over (using motion detectors). Samsung phones have this feature.

    Can you set volume keys to snooze / cancel?

    What about the display time out settings?

    I have a Moto G and the alarm I use is, I think, the built in one (accessed from tapping the main clock display on the home screen.
    I don't really want to turn it over, lest it not come on again. If I set the side buttons to Snooze then it still makes the main screen light up post-button press.
    Even on the extensive menu of Alarm Clock Plus there is no option for this so maybe it's simply not possible.
    Press Snooze - Screen turns off for XX mins. I wouldn't have thought this would be so tricky!

    If your alarm goes off, how is saying, "stop" going to be any more of an issue? I would think that if your partner has an issue with you saying, "stop" she would have an issue with the alarm as well.

    Well, I just want to snooze it rather than disable it. And I don't think it has that function anyhoo.
    Plus I'm a light sleeper and have a pretty quiet alarm!

    I thought the Moto phones has voice commands. I have a Galaxy S3 and I can just say, "snooze" and it will snooze the alarm. On my phone, you have to ensure that voice actions is activated. Not sure of the Moto G has an equivalent as I'm not familiar with the phone.
