    If you set an alarm and then turn on ultra power saving mode - and the alarm icon shows in the top right of the notifications bar - will it still not go off unless you have added it as an additional app on the UPSM home screen? The default ones are Phone, Messages, Internet, with the option to add 3 more... do you have to have added it there in order for the alarm to actually go off while in UPS mode?

    Honestly, your best bet is to try it yourself. Set an alarm to go off in a few minutes, without adding the app to UPSM.

    I actually did last night . I set my alarm then turned UPSM since I didn't have my charger. My alarm didn't go off this morning. Lol. I wasn't sure if this was a glitch or if the alarm just doesn't work in that mode unless you set it as one of your apps.

    Thanks! Good to know in case I need to use UPSM in the future. I will be sure to add it to the home screen.

    Hello mate. If you don't add it in UPSM mode, you will not wake up in the morning. It happened to me !
