sets it on really, I suppose

Ithyle writes, "If this lady next to me keeps smacking her gum I am going to go 'off' on her." I don't know that I can improve on that.

Well, the alarm really won't be off, will it. Setting "off" the alarm turns on the sound.

Good reason "off" is in quotes. When the alarm goes "off" it actually goes "on". Another one of those imponderables (e.g., park in the driveway, drive on the parkway).
