    Hello!
    So we just bought this new device, Lenovo Tab 4 with Android 8. Every morning, the device turns itself on and starts ringing with a "TurnOffAlarm" at 7:00 AM. There is no alarm set that hour. I already tried disabling the default Clock app, it didn't work. Besides, this alarm's texts are in English, while the rest of the device is in Spanish.
    This alarm just makes the device vibrate, it doesn't even have a tone, but the Lenovo log app does sound when the device turns on, so it's really annoying.
    There is no third-part app that could be causing this (it has fery few apps installed...) Any ideas before trying to reset to default settings?

    Welcome to Android Central! How sure are you that this isn't coming from a 3rd party app? It can be hard to tell sometimes when an app has a hidden "feature" like this. Try uninstalling apps one by one until the problem goes away. You can also try booting into Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away -- if it does, then it's definitely something you installed: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht504261

    I'm sorry, I'm the author of the question, I forgot to create an account when I post it. I forgot to check previously, but this alarm does not even ring when the device is on, so it doesn't ring either while Safe mode... Any more ideas? Thank!

    May be a persistent notification? A reminder?

    Do you keep the tablet powered off, and then it powers on by itself at 7 AM? If so, I think that's a feature in the system settings. I got my daughter that same tablet, and I seem to recall a timed power on option. I don't have it in front of me right now, so I'll have to get back to you later about it.

    EDIT: Here it is for the Tab 4 10: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht504368
