    When I'm using my Nexus S and the alarm clock goes off, I can't figure out any way to turn the alarm off without actually turning the phone off.

    The volume buttons do nothing, the sleep/power button just turns the screen off, opening the alarm clock app and unchecking the alarms does nothing.

    Anyone had this problem and found a solution?

    Uh, isn't there like a dismiss slider on the screen?

    Not if I'm using the phone at the time, i.e. playing a game or typing a text message.

    If the phone isn't being used the dismiss screen pops up when the alarm goes off, if not I can't get it on the screen in the first place.

    I have a TW skinned phone so I can't be sure its the same, but as Logan had said, if you are in a game and the alarm goes off if you press home, it should be in the notification pull down bar.
