    My alarm clock on the HERO doesnt work now, i set the alarm but it doesnt go off. Seemingly it might be an app which is stopping it from working? is it possible=? and also how might i find out which app it is thats stopping it.

    Do you have the Alarm volume on?

    Not the ringer volume. To check, going into where you set the alarm, select Alarm sound, then hit volume up or down rocker.

    Are you running an automatic task killer?

    That's probably the issue. There's a sticky at the top of the forum that will explain in more detail but the long and short of it is, most likely, your task killer is killing the clock process which will kill your alarm since it has to have that process. A task killer really isn't necessary, as explained in the sticky. I bet if you turn it off you'll have your alarm working just fine.

    Task Killers are controversial..

    If you are bent on running one..put the Clock on the "ignore list".

    Otherwise, as previously stated, dump the Task Killer.
