    Did anyone else's Desire alarm fail to go off this morning? Four of us (so far!) in the UK had the same failure and were late for work as a result.

    Could be a problem with JuiceDefender app maybe? I think it's the only non-standard app that my girlfriend and I both have installed.

    Mine Worked OK as usual with Juice Defender Installed...I'm out of Ideas except the universal 'Have you got a task killer running' question which I'm sure has been done to death and doesn't warrant a response....:D

    funnily enough, my alarms didn't go off and i was late for work, i'm using "alarm clock plus V2*" by cvp... though i'd turned it off n gone backl to sleep, but i just tested it and it didnt go off, although the update it did right after fixed it,

    i also have atk running, but i have my alarms added to ignore list.

    I have Advanced Task Killer running, partner doesn't. Although she's been known to switch her alarm off without waking up so maybe it's that.

    I've just tested the alarm (without ATKiller running, with JuiceDef running) and it works. This isn't scientific at all, as I didn't test it with ATK running first! Pretty sure it's the only thing I'm doing differently since last night though.

    ATK has only come in useful once in the last 6 weeks (to force my Alarm closed when it didn't go off properly on Wednesday!) so I've disabled it. I have installed SystemPanel Lite and that does the same thing but doesn't run constantly. (ref: http://androidcommunity.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-32518.html)

    Mine ran fine, using task killer.

    Do you lay the phone face down?

    this happened to me twice when i first got my desire.

    I use Advanced Task Killer. All i had to do was add the clock to my "ignore list" and it has worked from then on.
