How to Turn Off the Alarm Clock on the Droid

by C. Taylor

    The Motorola Droid offers a convenient and portable alarm clock via an integrated app. This alarm clock features an easily dismissed alarm with a snooze feature to give you those few extra minutes of sleep. However, if you accidentally press the Back or Lock key, then the option to turn off the ringing alarm disappears without an obvious way to re-enable it. Although you can disable the alarm before its initial ring, this method may not work while it's ringing or after you choose to snooze.

    Turning Off Alarm While It's Ringing

    Step 1

    Touch the "Dismiss" icon to turn it off a ringing alarm. On some Droid models, you need to slide to "Dismiss" instead of simply touching it.

    Step 2

    Touch or slide "Snooze" to turn off the alarm temporarily -- it will ring again in five minutes. If you accidentally hit the Back or Lock key, the option to turn off the alarm disappears, but the alarm keeps ringing.

    Step 3

    Press the top "Power/Lock" key and enter your Droid's unlock password, if required.

    Step 4

    Slide the top Notifications bar down and touch the alarm clock to disable it. This works while the alarm is ringing or between snoozes.

    Turning Off Unactivated Alarm

    Step 1

    Press the top "Power/Lock" key and enter your Droid's unlock password, if required.

    Step 2

    Touch the Launcher icon and select "Alarm Clock" or "Alarm & Timer," depending on your model.

    Step 3

    Scroll down until you see the green check-mark next to the alarm you wish to disable.

    Step 4

    Touch the check-mark to turn off the alarm.
