When you're deaf. The alarm is a pulse of bright lights.

I actually just googled deaf alarm clocks and most (if not all) seem to use vibrations and bed shaking instead of bright lights. I guess that's why I don't design alarm clocks for the impaired.

if it displays 00:00 when it's unset, it could be that.

If it always displays 4 digits, it should be 08:08
If it only lights the digits in use, it will be 23:38 or 23:58 or 23:28

This is if it's digital. Otherwise, I guess mid-day if it's outside, indeterminal if inside.

Your clock is digital, and not of the 24-hour variety.

Also it's set properly, so only valid times show.

You have the right idea.

if it is brightest it consumes battery greatest. 8 has 7 led on, 0 /9/6 has 6 led on, A for (am) > P for (pm) ... 08:08 AM

But clocks I've seen don't display that format (leading zero)

One could say either you over-achieved, or your brightness was just unreal.

Good solve.
