I am using Fedora 25 (Gnome). I setup alarm to alert me on 1:00AM everyday but it does't buzz as expected unless I open the clock GUI.

Can anyone explain why it happen? Alarm timer suppose to work in background.

You are right, according to the Gnome help page the alarm should go off no matter whether Gnome Clocks is "open or not".

This is a bug that has already been reported on the Gnome bugzilla.
