    Ever since the Anniversary Update, I've noticed that alarms aren't sounding when my Surface Pro 4 is asleep. The last time I had this problem, when I first got the PC, I changed the hibernation settings, but they aren't the problem this time. As someone who uses the Alarms and Clock app a lot, I really need a solution.

    Not familiar w Surface Pro 4, but, if it was a phone, I'd check ...
    Are Quiet Hours (Cortana) on?
    Do you have Notifications set correctly for Alarms & Clock after Update (show & sound alarm when phone (tablet) is locked s/b ON)?
    Do you have a valid setting for sound on that notification - does the sound exist?

    All I could think of, more if I think of it ...
    Good Luck

    You could also try reinstalling the app. To do this (Since it is not a normal right click to uninstall) open powershell, type:

    "Get-AppxPackage *windowsalarms* | Remove-AppxPackage" (Without the quotes)

    And press enter. Then re-install it by searching for "Windows Alarms & Clock" In the store, or if you want heres a link to it in the store http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=lQHeJmP4

    Hope this works!
