    Alarm Clock Notification Delay on Windows 10 Pro

    Hi, I just finish building my custom pc and have updated the drivers. But there's one problem I'm currently having, the Alarm in the built in Alarm & Clock app didn't go off on time but instead the notification was delayed 2 - 3 hours later after I wake up and moving the mouse. I usually left my pc on overnight.

    I have tried:
    • Resetting the Alarm & Clock app.
    • Reinstalling the Alarm & Clock app.
    • Resetting the PC.
    • Turn off anything that puts my pc to sleep in the power settings.

    Unfortunately nothing works.
    I do know there's a a free third party software for alarm. But if its possible I would like to use the built in app because I never had this problem before on my old laptop.

    Thank you.

    That's a very inefficient alarm clock, bad for the environment and leaves your PC on..
    Is your monitor turning itself off?

    If MS haven't bothered to deal with sleep mode, 3rd party is best.

    Nope, my monitor is still on and idle, even my wallpaper engine is still moving around. So I don't think my PC is asleep. Its just the alarm notification being delayed for some unknown reason.

    Guess I'll stick to the free alarm clock hd+ app.
