I was 7 minutes away from sunrise when I woke up for fajr. I didn't pray due to the reason I mentioned. Also I wasn't sure about exact time of sunrise. So I finally let it go. I have set daily alarm but I don't remember if I woke up on it or due to dominant sleep I just turned it off while it was ringing. Will this be counted in my negligence?

Whenever you wake up for fajr, even if it is late you can pray as soon as possible.

'The Prophet was asked about a man who forgets prayer or sleeps and misses it. He said: 'he performs it when he remembers it.'" https://sunnah.com/ibnmajah:695

Another similar hadith

Abu Qatadah narrated: "They asked the Prophet about when they sIept past the Salat. He said: 'There is no negligence in sleep, negligence is only while one is awake. So when one of you forgets a Salat, or sleeps through it, then let him pray it when he remembers it.'" https://sunnah.com/tirmidhi:177
