Ok, so, I have noticed - and not just my tablet - but every android device I have ever had, the alarm has failed to go off in the morning, even though it's set. it will go off if you set it for a few minutes, maybe hours, but if you leave an alarm to go off by itself at an important time, it fails you. I wake up, and the notification is in my notification saying "Alarm set for xx:00 AM" and I tap it, and THEN it goes off, even saying that the alarm was set for the whatever the time was when I tapped the notification. USELESS. same thing on my phone, and my previous phone. Is this something with android or what? I need to sort this out or I am going to end up being late for something really important!

My alarm has only failed to go off if the case is closed. It's a minor inconvenience, but I just leave the case open so the alarm actually goes off.

I agree, if you are using a case with a magnet that turns your Tab screen on and off, you need to leave the cover open when using the alarm function .

Not only magnets but the cover itself turns the screen off.

Took out both magnets from the cover and still screen goes black when closing it, same story with alarm - screen needs to be uncovered to have alarm sound in the morning

Well....I did enjoy the extra hour and 1/2 sleep I got the first time I used it with the case closed!

I really think this is a major flaw on an otherwise great tab.

Are you guys using the built-in stock alarm clock? Download one from the Play Store. I have never had this problem on the Android platform, but then again I have never used the built-in alarm clock. I also don't use a case but I fail to see how that would make a difference.
