    Anyone else having this problem? I set my alarm the night before for 7am having it repeat on tuesday, wedensday and thursday and it never goes off! The pop up bubble even says "this alarm is set for 23 hours and 2 mins from now", I set one at midnight and it said "this alarm will go off in 6 hours", and it doesn't! I've missed two swim practices already cuz of it :(

    But when I do a test alarm and say its 7:26 am right now i set it for 7:27 am and THEN it goes off... anyone have a fix for this??

    I had the same problem with my hero a while back. I had to use the desk clock to keep the phone awake so that my alarm would go off in the mornings. Give that a shot.

    To confirm if it's a "phone needs to be awake" thing:

    1. Set an alarm for 15 minutes from now. Let your phone sleep and see if the alarm goes off.

    2. Set an alarm for 15 minutes from now. Turn on the desk clock and see if the alarm goes off.

    Make sure the alarm volume is turned up, its different from the ringer volume. Also, dont use a task killer. they will kill the alarm clock and wont let it go off.

    That's probably my problem now that I think of it...

    Yeah I think that was it, clocks was in my list of apps to kill in ATK definitely putting that in the ignore list.. Thanks

    I find that if I lay my phone screen down....my alarms won't go off. Just in case that's something you do.

    While tinkering with my EVO to figure out an answer for this exact issue and surfing the net for answers, I discovered that I needed to add my Clock on the Ignore List to the Advanced Task Killer. After I did that it worked like a charm. I have my Advanced Task Killer set to kill all apps when the screen shuts off. Hopefully this will help you all. I discovered the answer on the HTC site.

    if your ringer is on silent like mine always is, make sure that you check the "alarm in silent mode" option under the alarm settings. otherwise when your ringer is off, the alarm won't go off.

    I'm actually looking for the solution to the issue that if you happen to be doing something exactly as an alarm triggers, sometimes the alarm goes and the UI to shut it off never comes up. I have yet to find a way to shut it off without restarting the phone.

    I don't use any task killer, but find that often my alarms, whether they be calendar or alarm clock, don't sound out unless my screen is turned on. Not good when you're late because of this. I turn on the screen and get the alarm.
