Default Alarm doesn't work when phone off

Hey guys,

I always turn my phone off completely and let it charge overnight while sleeping. However my alarm doesn't seem to work when my phone is completely turned off, it just doesn't ring.

It does work fine though when then phone is turned on. Is there a setting or an option that Ive missed somewhere. Please advice!

Thanks

No there is no settings, it's the android system that doesn't allow an alarm to activate with the phone off.
It'd be like asking your computer to run a program while it's off or your TV to turn itself on when it's off and I don't mean off as in standby, I mean off from the power button on the front.

No problem, your very welcome.

I thought it was silly when I got my first Droid but if you think of it that way....

That's rubbish. I have switched to the S2 from a Nokia smart phone and the Nokia could be switched off and the alarm would still work!

Surely this is a massive oversight by either Samsung or Google? When I go away I quite often forget my charger. In these instances I need to turn the phone off overnight to make the battery last but if the alarm wont work I can't.

I don't believe it isn't something that can't be fixed. I mean the clock time is still correct on start up even before it can re-set via signal so it is obviously running some background stuff whilst off! Just like your PC does with its internal battery.

How do you trouble shoot something like this to Samsung/Google Android?

I don't know but if it was something that could easily be resolved then why have no dev incorporated it into custom ROM's?
I've run many custom ROM's in my S2 and at no point had this been resolved. I don't think for most users it's an issue but you could put the phone into Airplane mode, this will switch off all radios and conserve battery. Last time I did this, in 6hrs I lost 1% battery...

I have actually tried switching flight mode on over night and it works really well.
the phone uses 0 to 1% battery that way till morning.
and if you think about it even if you switch the phone off, when you switch it back on it will probably use the same amount of battery during boot up or even more.

Yep, I have started doing this as well and it doesn't bother me anymore. I charge my phone at overnight anway, so i keep it plugged in charging whilst the phone is on flight mode. Works well!
