Reminder not working

Jan 1, 2013 at 8:52 PM

I do not get a popup or the alert sound.  In my google calendar appointment, I have a pop-up reminder set.  In the gadget I have the "Use the reminder application" enabled.  I have an alert sound selected which is a valid audio file.  The appointment shows in the gadget, and appointments update as expected, but I never get a visual or audio reminder.  Am I doing something wrong, and if so, how do I fix this?  I am using the most recent version as far as I know, just installed it today.
