If you mean you powered it down when you say "off", no, alarms won't work. Otherwise, yes, they do when the screen is just turned off. I used my S4 extensively this summer for an alarm clock in our RV. Worked EVERYTIME for 2 months and was super easy to set. I also use the countdown timer quite often, several times a week, and it always works also.
