Can I Keep Ringer Working Overnight?

It wasn't by default. I turned it on for a reason: The phone was frequently sounding its notification ring--without ever telling me what it was notifying me about. Sure enough, it jangled loud and unexplainedly about a minute and a half after I turned Do Not Disturb back off again. I know from experience it will do that all night long.

I need a way to let phone calls ring any time, without any other notifications doing so.

And you want it done automatically?
Maybe something that could be done with Tasker?

How do I do that?

Incidentally, even with Do Not Disturb on, phone calls come through loud and clear by day. And the ringer settings are normal now, at almost 2 AM.
But many mornings, the ringer is muted when I wake up.

Come to think of it, it's probably the sleep-tracking app I use sporadically. I'll check that.

I have the option of allowing phone calls to go through, even the option of limiting them to my contacts, while silencing all other alerts. I leave it off, so I haven't played with it, but it also appears I can exempt certain apps from the DND as well.
