    Weeks ago I set a single reminder in Clock & Alarms. It went off as expected, but there was no UI on the screen on how to disable it or snooze it. I turned it off in Clock & Alarms, and it continued for a while, then stopped. Now, whenever I reboot the Treo, the damned thing starts going off again for a few minutes, again with no UI to turn it off.

    How do I kill this damned thing?

    Can you find the notification icon on the top bar? If yes, just click it and dismiss it.

    Otherwise, you can use memmaid (commercial) or task manager v2.7 to identify it in notification database and delete it. Good luck.

    Awesome, that seems to have done the trick! Found the Alarm in the notification database and nuked it, now the Treo is quiet

    Good. Keep the task manager. It is the best so far. Almost doing everything, except cooking your breakfast .

    No doubt, it's a keeper! Getting rid of all those other registry editor/task manager apps as we speak

    Yup, and one column actually has the name that you gave the alarm.

    Actually, if someone can explain the notification queue, that would be great. I have lots of Calendar.exe, replog.exe, 1 tasks.exe, a few calnot.exe, one \\windows\calupd.exe. MemMaid says no duplicates have been found.

    Thanks

    Basically a database that stores "things that happen" when certain events are triggered. For example, turning the device on triggers a "whendevicewakesup", event in which you may have a running process that runs when that happens. When Calendar events or tasks have reminders associated with them, they are placed in the notification database.

    HTH!

    Thanks, so how does one know if it is a hanging notification and should be deleted or not?

    Well, if it's not a duplicate notification, it should be ok. If you notice that the DB has an entry for an application you have uninstalled, then you know it's pretty safe to get rid of it. Same with an alarm clock notification (the subject of the thread). If you uncheck a reminder for a calendar event or task, and it's still in the db, pretty safe to delete it (although I leave those alone - unless they cause an alarm).

    Moral of story - just worry about dupe notifications and those that seem to cause problems.

    Calendar.exe notifications are event reminders from the calendar. Check the date/time of when it's supposed to go off..if any are in the past you can delete em, otherwise leave them alone

    replog.exe is for Active Sync. If you delete these by mistake you won't be able to use ActiveSync at all, so leave them alone.

    Oops...forgot about that one...but basically goes along what I was saying.

    Thanks Scotty!
