Do the alarms sound when my computer is off?


In order to be able to arrive on time, wake up at the right time or similar, the truth is that alarms are an important part of some people's lives. In this sense, in many cases a device dedicated to it is used, such as an alarm clock, but there are other times when it is better to depend on electronic devices such as the telephone or the computer to use the alarms.

And, in this sense, one of the most important points to consider is whether the alarms are going to sound at any time or not. And it is that, in many mobile phones, if the alarms are correctly configured, even if the device is turned off, it is possible that it starts to sound the alarm. However, does this happen on Windows 10 computers, laptops, and tablets?

When do Windows 10 alarms sound? Can I use them even if my equipment is not turned on?

As we mentioned, in this case it is a crucial factor when deciding between one device or another to set the alarm in question. And it is that, on Windows 10 computers, alarms only sound when the computer is turned on properly.

In this way, if you set an alarm on your computer or tablet, and for any reason when it sounds you have your device turned off or hibernated, the alarm will not sound directlyas Windows does not have a function for the computer to start exclusively to sound the alarm.
