What do you mean, "turn off the alarm at 3am"? I don't have any alarm at
3am. My Newton turns itself on at 3am to do some housekeeping (this has been
documented many times here), but doesn't post any alarm. The only thing I
can see is that you left an alarm on screen so it sounds again when the
Newton wake up at 3am.
