Question about GE 74801 DUAL ALARM CLOCK RADIO .9" LCD
JUST HOLD THE NAP BUTTON UNTIL IT NO LONGER IS BLINKING NAP, dont return it, its very good at waking you up in the morning, and is basically a good alarm clock, it just has a different way of turning nap off.

Honestly holding down the nap button for a few seconds 5-7 WILL deactivate the nap setting. The nap indicator light will blink about 5 times while you continue to press it down and afterwards the nap will disappear completely. Have a peaceful night GE clock owners. It's a good clock.

These guys who keep saying to just hold in the nap button til it turns off are stupid. THE PROBLEM IS... THAT IT DOES NOT TURN OFF WHEN YOU HOLD THE BUTTON IN!!!! I have been having this same issue with mine for a couple years now until we finally got tired of the MAX FRUSTRATION it causes by spending $150 on a new ipod dock alarm and, alas, no more issues! Unfortunately, as I recently rented a place in the city, I had to drag this thing along as my alarm clock and am gong crazy again, which is what led me to ths forum. Also, I am from NS and last spring I stayed at a hotel in NB which had the exact same alarm with the EXACT same issue. We spent 5 minute trying to hold it down to turn it off, then another 5 staying up late waiting for it to go off on it's own. This is a seemingly small issue, but it's really huge as it leads to max (and mass, seemingly) frustration, at a time when one is winding down for what is supposed to be a peaceful sleep. This issue needs to be solved and an actual solution, if it exists, needs to be posted, or I want GE to issue me a new alarm that doesn't do this. No matter that we've had it for a couple years, it's not a new problem, and it seems it's not isolated either, owing to several forums like this on the internet, let alone the proof from the NB hotel alarm experience.
Also, I'm sorry that this isn't a solution and is therefore misleading.

Very annoying. This happened with my clock, I returned it to Wal-mart, and it happened with the replacement. Solution is to stop buying GE products where all they care about is cost cutting and using China in lieu of quality.
