Answer:
Bit of a slow reply here :) The clock reacts to light in the room, when its dark the clock display dims down very low.
I made a little video, not the best quality but you get the idea: https://vimeo.com/114468231

The sound comes in quietly at the time you set the alarm for but the light starts half an hour earlier changing from a deep orange glow up to a nice natural summer yellow.

The sounds aren't very loud and I find the quiet bird chirping sounds almost like there's a bird outside the window. But if you prefer not to have sounds at all there are other Philips light alarm clocks without sound, or if you just don't want sound occasionally you can always switch it to radio and turn the sound down. see less The sound comes in quietly at the time you set the alarm for but the light starts half an hour earlier changing from a deep orange glow up to a nice natural summer yellow.

Answer:
This device uses LED lamps which are different from traditional bulbs. They don't use filaments that are fragile and can break so last a LOT longer, typically 50,000 hours or more, against one or two thousand hours. They can sometimes fail, but they're way more reliable as a rule. Also they run a great deal cooler a… see more This device uses LED lamps which are different from traditional bulbs. They don't use filaments that are fragile and can break so last a LOT longer, typically 50,000 hours or more, against one or two thousand hours. They can sometimes fail, but they're way more reliable as a rule. Also they run a great deal cooler and use about 90% less electricity for a given light output si it's positive all round, which is why LED lamps will soon become the norm in domestic use. Ikea for instance have announced a policy of selling nothing else except LED lighting within the next year. So I wouldn't worry too much. see less This device uses LED lamps which are different from traditional bulbs.

Answer:
I haven't experienced any issues with my clock. If it's switched off at the wall then I'd suggest somebody is turning it off and you need to have a word.

So on Friday morning you would hit the off button to stop the alarm noise then hit the Alarm 2 button to turn on your weekend alarm. It's not ideal but you get used to it.

Answer:
About 20cm diameter ie from side to side across the front (front is slightly domed, so this is difficult to be more precise) and about 10cm deep.

Answer:
The white light itself turns off completely but the red LED clock stays on and even though it does dim when the light is off it still emits more light that I would like. I like the room dark so I often put something in front of the red clock light when I want to sleep.

Answer:
Yes. I've turned the light off when it was halfway through its ramp up and that appeared to cancel the sequence. It didn't start again or sound the audible alarm, and the alarm icon turned off.
