Alarm functionality (Wake me up in the morning!)

I’ve got the stereo tied to one of those fancy wifi-enabled smart switches. It’s scheduled to come on at 5am, and does so daily without fail.

The Pi turns on with the stereo, connects to Wi-Fi, and sits idle. The alarm is supposed to come on at 5:30am and play the “Wake Up” Playlist. This playlist doesn’t actually start playing until roughly 2:15pm.

I ran “dpkg-reconfigure tzdata” and ensured it was set correctly along with the “date” command. Anytime I’ve checked the date/time via SSH it’s been accurate, so I don’t think it’s that.

Is it a bug in the software or is there something else I’m missing?
