Thunderbolt Alarm not going off?
My alarm has not gone off two days in a row. First night I thought I just slept through it, but two days in a row sleeping through it doesn't happen to me. I don't use task killers, I have the alarm volume turned up all the way no matter what sound profile the phone is on. Phone is too far away from me to sleep-snooze. Anyone else have this problem or have a solution?

Stock alarm for HTC Sense... at least I'm guessing that is what you are using.
Go into the Alarm... Menu > Settings > be sure "Alarm in silent mode" is checked... then check the Alarm volume, and Snooze duration are set correctly.
My device is in silent mode during the night... and these settings work great... and it gets me up even with ear plugs in (not always necessary, but I do to get a good nights sleep sometimes... if you see where I'm going with that... if not, don't ask).

I think you got the why is this alarm black and this white thing... so, just another little dumb question, but one I have to ask... is it set ON with the check box checked???
My Monday alarm is not set on for Monday, but my Tuesday and Wed-Fri alarms are set on.

I am having a similar issue. I had my alarm set for 8am and it was working fine, going off until I either snoozed or dismissed it.
I changed the time to 7am and now it goes off for about 2 seconds and appears to automatically snooze itself. It continues to do this until I unlock the screen and lock it again. After i've done that and it goes off again, it will continue to ring correctly until I either snooze or dismiss it.
Never had this happen before but it started two or 3 days ago.

i've been having this issue for the past 4 work days. luckily i'm self-employed so it's ok and i make my own hours. at first, it was the snooze that wasn't going off. today it was the alarm in general. MY guess was that when i get an email or notification, it cancels the alarm. i'm gonna give it a test right now
-nope it wasn't that, gonna try to see if it's the task killer. i'll try your suggestion below as well.

I have a suspicion that your phones are (unknown to you) spontaneously rebooting overnight and the alarm service doesn't restart until you unlock the phone the first time. Just a suspicion.

I've had the auto snoozing problem with my alarm and in one instance it not going off. It may not be your task killer as I've never used one on mine. On mine, the culprit (I believe) is TV Shows Stream. Every time I use that app something else seems to go funny on my phone, either the alarms get goofy or the screen will stop going off. Usually a reboot corrects this but in the instance of the alarms I have to go into the alarm and delete, not reset, the instances of the alarms then add new ones. That's what's worked for me. Serves me right for using an app that may be doing something that isn't entirely legal. (not finger pointing here, it just seems too good to be true)
My alarm went off this morning. This time i didnt do a restart. I think i restart and leave it plugged in and go to sleep. Im going to start doing my routine restrts in the morning now. I think the guy who said its restarting and alarm services not turning on may uave been right, except im restarting it on my own instead of the phone restarting itself.

If you have another alarm on your phone( Alarm clock plus) it can cause conflicts and the alarms wont funtion correctly. This happened to me with my incredible and made me late two days in a row. If you put an anti virus or app killing app on your phone you should check your settings or remove them all together.

I'm having the same problem, although with a droid 2. I don't have a task killer and I haven't changed anything. This happened to me once before and I figured I had just made a mistake, but when my alarm didn't go off today, I made sure to check everything. The alarm icon was still visible, it was set to play in silent mode, volume was up full, the right time was set, and it was set to go off every day. It has been working fine for the past few months and suddenly it fails. Really frustrating.

I have also had a problem with my alarm NOT going off for work the last two mornings. At work I noticed that my phone had spontaneously decided I lived in Lithuania--I suspect it "moved me" overnight and automatically changed the time on the phone to match Lithuania. Since that time was evening, it probably leapfrogged my morning alarm.
If this is the case that would truly be annoying, as I have yet to figure out how to force my phone to lock onto my actual location north of Houston. It rarely recognizes where I really live . . .
