Bug Description

Originally from http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=619026:

when I snooze an alarm there is no possibility to stop it before it
triggers the next time. (An obvious workaround is to disable and reenable
it.) In my opinion the "Stop" button should not be greyed out for a
snoozed alarm.

Changed in alarm-clock-applet (Debian):
status: Unknown → Confirmed

The "Stop" button is intended to stop an alarm from ringing. To stop the alarm countdown, the correct action would be to disable it. I guess what you're asking for is a button to "reset" a snoozed alarm to its enabled state.

How often do you find yourself resetting an alarm? Does it really warrant an extra button?

I think the requested feature makes sense for recurring (daily) alarms which are used as a task
reminder. You might initially snooze the alarm and then later on before the snooze expires, you have for example completed the task and don't want to ring again this day but only the next scheduled occurrence (e.g. next day). Going into the task list and turn the task off/on is not very convenient.
