Low battery alarm does not work

I run my Win7 laptop as a desktop. Every now and then the power cord gets disconnected. This should not be a problem, because I have Windows's low battery alarm (and also its critical battery alarm) enabled. I keep my system sound turned on, and I do hear alarms I've enabled for my Outlook program. (I've disabled all other Windows alarms.) Yet my laptop all too often goes dead for lack of power, and I've never heard either of the two alarms. When that happens, I reconnect the power cord and after restarting my system I can resume computing. But having to do so is a nuisance. Why can I not hear those two alarms?
