"Sleep time" is coming.

I have an Alcatel One Touch. I had it for a few months, and then suddenly it started asking me every night at 10PM "Sleep time is coming, the phone will switch to Sleep mode. Do you want to change?" I must have accidentally activated this feature, and I want to turn it off. I've read the manual and Googled, but haven't been able to figure out a solution. Thanks!

Does it say "change" or "charge?" Most computers and phones will go to sleep automatically if their battery is too low to keep going. If this is the case, the only solutions would be to charge the battery more often, use the phone less, or get a backup or replacement battery.

It might be useful to know the exact model of your phone and the version of its operating system (for example "Android 4.3"). Alcatel sells many different devices under its OneTouch brand.

It says "change". "Sleep mode" means it goes on silent/vibrate until it's time for the alarm to go off.

It's a One Touch 4030D. Firmware version 4.1.1

I have a tablet running Android 4.1.2. I'm not sure how much the interface matches your phone, but if it does:

Open the "Settings" app. Under "Device" choose "Sound" and then choose "Quiet hours" to turn this feature on or off.

On my phone running Android 5.0.1, it's found under Settings: Device : Sound & notification: Interruptions: Downtime.

Hmm.... No dice so far, I can't figure out how to get to "Sound" under settings.
