Default V40 Alarm

hi there, i have a 1998 volvo v40 1.9se - last night at 4.am the alarm went off for no reason, i reset it and it went off again, so i left the car unlocked and it locked itself few mins later and again alarm went off, so i used the key to lock the car and all was well. is there any kind of problems or faults that can occur with the alaram system? thanks. martin
