I've posted this on alldroid.org too but I though I'd ask here also:
Ok, this is really weird. I can't figure out whats going on here.
Problem: alarms sometimes just wont go off.
First let me say I never use any task killer apps so that's not it.
I'm 100% sure the alarms are enabled and silent mode is NOT on.
Last time it happened was this morning. Alarm was set to 06:45, I had a backup alarm clock (an old Palm device) wake me at 06:50 since I've learned the Milestone is not to be trusted anymore.
First thing I did was pick up the phone, and since I had it set to Media dock mode with DockConnector, it woke itself up with the g-sensor and THEN the alarm fired. I also had another alarm app set to go off 5 minutes later at 06:50 so that fired simultaneously.
I did a adb logcat to file and found something quite odd - between 00:13 and 07:03 (when i picked up the phone) there are no entries! It's like the phone has been dead most of the night only to be waken up by moving it.
I've attached the log file - if anyone would care to take a look Id be really grateful. I know there are some sharp minds on this forum
Thanks a lot!
