Now there seems to be a third party GUI tool to set the snooze timeout. But I NEVER want any snooze. I always wake up on the first ring. And often I wake up before the alarm and I'm in, and when the alarm clock rings, I'm in toilet or kitchen, where I cannot stop the alarm.

But it seems there is no way to completely disable snoozing from the alarm clock not even from the command line:

timedclient-qt5 --set-snooze=0 says: default snooze set to 0

But that actually seems to keep the old value, not disable it.

I don't understand how disabling snooze would stop the alarm from ringing when you're in the kitchen or in the bathroom. But I agree that one should be able to disable snooze, preferably in the alarm clock settings.

Why not, but I don't really see the issue: if you don't want to snooze, swipe up instead of swiping down... And if you wake up before the alarm rings err... don't set any alarm? Disabling snoozing will not permit to your phone to detect whether you're already awake or not before ringing...

I perfectly understand the request : when the alarm rings, you don't need to find your phone to stop it, you just have to listen to the music for 20-30 seconds. You just have to choose a music you like ! I use this option on my N900 all the time, I missed it on the N9. I would be happy to have it again.

Disabling the snooze would make me have to listen that alarm only ONCE instead of MANY TIMES when my phone is at my night table and I'm in kitcher or toilet.

I cannot swipe the screen when I'm away form the phone, but when I'm somewhere near, the alarm still irritates me.

I understand the use case now, where you don't turn off the alarm, but you actually let the alarm ring out. I didn't understand that at first, as I always turn off the alarm when I wake up, no matter if it has gone off or not.

Also you should make this answer a comment instead.
