If you need an alarm clock to wake up for an 11am start, and it goes off during the game (which means you set it to go off after 11am - the start time of the game), then in my opinion, you deserve all the wrath from the arbiters that is about to come your way. :wink:
Sometimes round times change:

It seems simpler to notify your opponent that you are going to switch off your phone and warn him that it will make a noise (or say you are going to go outside the playing area and turn it off). If he tries to claim a win in tournaments where the default is automatic, make obscure references to the J'adoube rule.

Do you really need an alarm to remind you that it's lunchtime? I don't think I've ever forgotten to eat lunch because I never had an alarm to remind me. :?

If round times change, then I'd have thought you would be wise enough to change your alarm time, or turn it off. Maybe I'm expecting too much?
