    A couple of times I have accidentally lost the Dismiss box while the alarm is ringing. Then for the next 5 minutes I was frantically trying to turn off the d@#n alarm while my newborn daughter was sleeping beside me.

    Finally I decided there was just no way to silence the alarm and I turned off my phone.

    This morning it happened to my husband. I kept telling him to just turn the phone off!! but he also tried for like five minutes... while my baby slept.

    Surely there is in fact a way to get that screen back up to dismiss the alarm. Can someone enlighten us please. Thanks.

    My phone sits in the dock. When the alarm goes off I aim a finger at the dismiss or snooze button and that's the first thing I touch on the phone. Are you losing the screen due to hitting other buttons on the side of the phone?

    Most of the time I touch the Dismiss in the box and it works fine. A couple of times (while half asleep, of course) I have hit another part of the screen which causes the box to disappear.

    Pulling up the alarm shortcut doesn't bring it back. You can't turn down the alarm volume, it isn't in the notification bar.... nothing.

    My phone isn't in a dock. So I could very well be hitting the buttons on the side as I pick it up.

    When you are in the Alarm Clock settings, you can set the behavior of the side buttons to snooze or dismiss. I always use the button. If you should hit the back button by accident and get back to the home screen with the alarm still going off, the side button will no longer work until you pull down the task pane and reselect the alarm. Using the buttons works with a dock or without.

    Exactly, if you miss the dismiss button.

    Press the lock button to wake up the screen, unlock your phone, slide down the notifications bar and hit the alarm and you are there.

    Or if you have Beatiful Widgets installed like you should, you could tap the time and that will bring up your alarm as well. This should not be taking you 5 minutes. 5 seconds maybe.

    This doesn't work on my phone. Nothing short of turning off my phone will silence my alarm.
