    Couldn't find such an option in my ASRock H97M/ITX BIOS.
    But I found the option

    "RTC Alarm Power ON" set to "By OS"

    Changed to "disabled". I think this is my last chance.

    Okay solved, found the culprit(s)

    Intel Smart Connect Technology (boundled with the motherboard)
    Download Intel Smart Connect Technology

    combined with the BIOS setting:

    Advanced > Intel Smart Connect Technology = "Enabled"


    another BIOS setting:

    "RTC Alarm Power ON" = "By OS"


    "Disabled" both BIOS settings
    Uninstalled the "Intel Smart Connect Technology" program from Windows
