I had that happen, too. I eventually went through and erased every
event I could find in the calendar, and that finally stopped the alarm.
Before I had it fixed, I also left my battery out for a while. Now my
MP2100 has declared my battery (which was doing pretty well before
this problem) "deepToast" and refuses to charge it. Go figure....
