    Very few things work when they are turned off. Just leave it on overnight if you want the alarm to function. I use my iPhone for an alarm clock every night.

    What is the point of turning the phone off at night? This is the best time to get a full charge and optimize your battery's performance.

    Don't turn it off, just put it in sleep mode and the alarm will still work.

    I have my phone charging right next to me every night. When morning comes, the alarm wakes me up and I have a fully charged battery for the day. When u go to bed, the iPhone goes back on the charger.
    Same routine every night. :)

    Who turns a cell phone off? I either have mine on standby/sleep (with the display off) or the same sitting in my dock. The only reason to turn any phone off is if you MUST conserve power for some reason (you forgot a charger on a flight) or to reset the software. Otherwise, you're just like my parents whose phones I pay for but often can't reach because they haven't figured out silent switches. ::facepalm::

    If your turning it off to avoid someone calling, or it ringing during the night, just switch it into airplane mode. That way no calls, or texts will come through, and the alarms will still work fine.

    You don't even have to do this. Just switch off the ringer (silence switch next to volume buttons). This silences everything (noises from click keyboard, text alerts, phone calls, voice mail alerts), but the alarm clock.

    But the phone still vibrates. And a vibrating phone can wake you up.

    It's easier to put it in airplane mode than it is to turn vibrate off every night.

    Then why don't you just turn off the vibrate function for sleep mode?

    A couple of different guys at the apple told me that you should power off your phone every once in a while.. It resets some of the functions of the phone.. Helps it run smoother. I don't know just what I was told...

    Yeah, what he said. Turn off vibrate! I have my iPhone sounds-proof when I am sleeping. The only sound that could ever come out of it is the alarm going off.

    I don't ever have to worry about this. My iPhone has a built-in function where it will freeze about once per week. This will force me to do a hard reset. :D
