Tried Googling for this to no avail.

Don't know when this started happening, but on my Sony Xperia Acro S' stock alarm clock, when I snooze an alarm, I used to be able to cancel the snooze by pulling down the notification bar and hitting the button "Tap to dismiss" which is usually available just under the snoozed alarm notification.

Now all I get when I pull down the notification bar is "Alarm snoozed since (time) " and the button "Tap to dismiss" is gone with no obvious way to cancel the snoozed alarm. Have tried going in to the alarm clock and disabling and then re-enabling the alarm, but it seems to remember the snooze. Any ideas?

Xperia Acro S LT26w, running stock Andriod 4.1.2

Try going into the Application Manager and hitting Clear Cache for your Clock app. If that doesn't work, also try Clear Data (you'll have to set your alarms etc up again).

Thanks for the reply Big Hammer.

Managed to sort it out in the end. The behaviour of the Alarm clock appears to have been changed, probably when I updated my phone sometime last year to Android 4.1.2. Did perform a "clear data" on the app but didn't seem to change how it behaved.

Apparently you now have to select/hold the snoozed alarm notification and then slowly slide it down to reveal "Tap to turn off alarm". Seems to be a bit more cumbersome in this version as it usually takes a number of attempts to slide it down the right way in order to get it to reveal the "Tap to turn off alarm" button.

Have a look at Timely Alarm Clock from BITSPIN. I changed to it last year and the snooze function works with a single tap.
