    i think i have problems waking up on time.
    haha that's hilarious.

    i sorta do the same thing. my sony alarm plays my ipod for 20 minutes then my iphone goes off. then i silence it. then it goes off 3 more times then my old nokia phone rings really loudly from across my room which really wakes me up and makes me run to it to make it quiet lol.

    Sounds like you need an iPhone app that makes you solve a puzzle in order to silence the alarm or perhaps have the camera see something really bright like a light before it will let you silence the alarm... hmmm... app idea?

    Apple also said that the problem will disappear after November 7th. It seems the change is hard coded to US change. I had this problem for 2 weeks, but my iPhone sound at the right time yesterday morning. In iOS 4.2, the problem will be fixed and don't depend on US change anymore.

    So you discovered this bug in advance of everyone else and made an active decision not to upgrade in case it woke you up late during daylight savings? Impressive!

    I thought I read that if you delete the alarm and recreate it, that it would work. It didnt!

    I just set up a new one for an hour earlier for now.

    You should not stay up late that often.

    I have 3 alarms set, 2 of them are iPhones. I recently switched to alarm clock pro and it worked fine, however my actual iPhone alarm went off an hour late on my drive to work. Luckily I read about this problem yesterday. Typical apple, just set your alarm manually, hold your phone differently, don't sleep.

    Default Weekday Alarm Repeats working back again ?
    Dear friends,
    as per last night this bug (Apple BUG ID# 8427270), is NO MORE bug any more...

    What I mean is, either Apple send through iTunes - while iphone was on the dock - a silent update to iOS 4.1, or I fixed it by mistake, just bypassing an alarm...

    What I mean is that I tried to make a repeat alarm firstly in the alarms list (eg. 07:00 Weekdays - I named it "work" but didn't make it valid (OFF))
    Then (secondly) I made a repeat alarm (eg. 07:30 Weekdays, but do not name it!!! and make it valid (ON))

    Do it and Test it !!!

    Mine is working, perfectly !

    Cheers,
    VAD

    Default I solved the problem
    I bought Clock Pro from here and now I get an alarm that works. It uses an external push-notification to jar the app to the front to make sure the alarm goes off. It is an elegant "work around" Steve Jobs' Hubris Born of Success.

    I like the idea of not having to make sure I start up alarm clock pro before passing out, but the link to the app store from the site you provided does not work and I tried searching the app store without any luck.
