As far is I can tell there is not a global setting for turning off the alarm on the calender. Whenever you create a "Schedule" event on your calender the default seems to be for a "Reminder" alarm to go off "On Time"; that is to say the alarm will go off at the exact of your scheduled event. However, when you first create a "schedule" event you can scroll down to "Reminder" and choose from "On Time", "10 Minutes before", "30 Minutes before", "1 Hour before" or you can choose the one you would want which is "No Alarm". You can also find options on that screen for controlling what kind of alarm you want including the choice of having a "Vibrate only" alert to you scheduled event. You can always go back and "Edit" any events that are already scheduled and deselect the alarm for those events.
If you don't want to mess with the different alarms and alarm settings you might consider creating from the "Create Event" menu either a "Task" or a "Note" for a particular date on the calender. There are no default alarms associated with either of those. Create "Note is very easy to use. Just select a date and you can enter the time and other appointment information in the "Note" area of the "Create Note" screen.
Try using Datebook, it isn't exactly an alarm but you can program reminders and apply them daily, work days, multimple days (allowing you to choose which days you want to be reminded), weekly, day per month, or even yearly.
Try the following....
Open Active sync on your PC.
Double Click on Calendar.
Change the settings such that it syncs only 0 past and 0 future appointments.
SYNC (this will clear all calendar items on the IPAQ)
Now go back in to those Calendar settings, and set it back to the default which is 2 past weeks and All Future appointments.
SYNC (this will now reload all appointments into your Ipaq)
Yes, this blinking green light is an appointment notification. So if you set up an appointment for September 30th, 2005 at 9:00 AM with a reminder set to 1 day....then on Sept 29th at 9:00AM, the IPAQ will turn itself on and a reminder screen will appear on your IPAQ. After a length of time (the default of which I can't remember now) the Ipaq will turn itself off, but will leave that green light flashing. When you then turn the IPAQ back on, the reminder screen will again appear and you can choose to dismiss the reminder or snooze it.
