Sleep mode keeps activating the alarm no matter what I do. I have gone into the settings and dug down to turn it off and saved it but it reactivates next time. I deleted the current sleep mode then rebooted the phone and recreated it turning off the alarm but it still insists on turning it back on. I've stopped the app cleared the cache pretty much everything I could think of and it persists.
I've finally deleted sleep mode completely and just use the do not disturb under notifications and it's no problem. If you have other options you want to change during do not disturb most can be written into a routine that runs at a specified time period you can set parallel to sleep mode. Sure it's a pain but less painful than the bug that keeps arming the alarm.
Samsung you need to fix this.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I forgot to mention it happened to me after the last update beginning of February it was fine before that. I don't care about dimming screens and all that junk so I just use the do not disturb settings under the notifications setting instead and deleted the sleep mode. Actually I don't use any of the modes they seem redundant to other settings and are pretty useless as far as I can see. For example Drivers Mode, I have Android Auto that already loads automatically so what is the point. I also have a script to turn on my hotspot when connected to my truck so it can share my wifi.

This also recently started happening to me on my S21. It seems to reset the settings each day and add the alarm back. I like the sleep settings instead of just do not disturb because of other settings like dark mode & eye comfort shield.

If you don't want the alarm then you can still delete the mode, use the do not disturb in the notifications settings and then create a routine that runs at the same time period that turns on dark mode and eye comfort shield. Pretty simple to do and get's rid of the aggravating alarm.

Having the same problem. There was a whole other thread about issues with sleep mode activating (or not activating) correctly which appears to have been deleted? I had been using a workaround of adding a custom Sleep Mode which was working, but now the original Sleep Mode is turning an alarm on at 'wake' time that I didn't activate.

Thanks, seems like a doable workaround but hopefully Samsung can also fix the problem. I see in my routines "sleep" is activated (didn't realize this is where you can edit it, because I always did it from my clock app).
Maybe creating a new routine instead of the default sleep one and adding DND & eye shield, etc. will also work. I'll try that.
