When the alarm sounded this morning, I mistakenly swiped up and got into the events view instead and pressed an event. Then I found no way to get back to the alarm screen were I could snooze the current alarm.

I could enter the alarm application and disable the current alarm and set a new alarm five minutes later, but that's not the point. I just wanted to snooze it.

Edit: I mistook swiping up with swiping down as I held the phone upside-down in my sleep-drunkened state. What I really did was swipe down, which close the alarm screen but leave the alarm ringing and there's already a thread for that issue:

Swiping up means: Dismiss. See

After a dismiss, there is no snoozing.

Swipe-up seems to snooze the alarm for me - as it went off again after 5 minutes.

@jgr: you're right. In my sleep-drunkeness I didn't realize I held the phone upside down. Duplicate of

Still no way to snooze the alarm when the application is closed/minimized though.

@n9uwu: Rechecked this and, yes, you are right. But then, what is the problem of @Mohjive? Opening the event screen is standard action in this case and there is no need to set a snooze as additional action.

@Mohjive: I do not know any clock where you can set a snooze without the alarm being ringing that moment.

I suggest: Set a 5 min timer. This you can start with a single tap (once the Clock app is open)..
