set an alarm and turn your z10 off. This is the closest to your need.
I have tested, and confirm that this absolutely does not work. :-(
The alarm rings only after you manually turn on the phone.
I have also confirmed that fact last night as well. When I manually turn on the phone, the Alarm then goes off and indiacties the current time as the alarm time, lol.
This actually made me late for work the first time I used it. The Boss was ok with it. oh ya... I'm the Boss

No way dude. Auto on and off uses absolutely no energy and extends the battery life considerably. I wouldn't consider bedside mode as a substitute. I've used it and I still had to charge my phone because it was wasting energy while was sleeping. Bedside mode would be like a standby (no quite one because the screen isn't off and many more), whereas auto on and off would be more like hibernation (not quite one either because the phone remembers nothing about it's previous state).
Blackberry could come with significant battery autonomy if they can harness true stanby and hibernation techniques.

How I set up my Z10 in order to ridiculously enhance the battery autonomy (about the double life span):
1- Make sure Bluetooth and WiFi are on when you need them.
2- Since I only use vibration, I made sure the System Volume was zero.
3- If you have multiple email accounts, make sure the ones you use less often are NOT set on PUSH then set the Sync Interval to your preference.
4- Dim your display. I use the dimmest and figured out over time you I did not even notice the difference.
5- Disable “Allow Gestures when locked”. This prevents your phone from keeping an eye out all the time for screen gestures. Less processing = less power hungry phone (This may take some time to get used to since you’ll have to press the power button every time you need to resume your device)
6- Remove any apps you don’t use.
7- Download BX Battery Info in App World in order to effectively monitor your battery.
8- Then, set your phone on Bedside Mode instead of Auto On and Off (since it's not there anymore)

Thanks for replies.
The bedside keep me sleeping like a baby, the auto on and off is for battery saving and
also to keep the phone quite during the night.
If I use bedside and forgot to turn it off the mode?

This did not work for me - swiped many times and nothing happened. I HATE that there is no auto on and off. Why would BB remove such a great feature...step bacwards as far as I am concerned.

I echo everything you just said.
BB/RIM are you listening????? I have been to several forums and other sites and read the same things. What will you do?
Alicia Keys...is BB listening. If they aren't going to listen to us...the loyal (8 years) BB users then who will they listen to?
