VERY DISAPPOINTED THERE IS NO AUTO OFF FEATURE - WHY AND WHEN WIILL IT BE AVAILABLE?
Why? Because every new update incorporates new features and sometimes drops other features.
When? That's a forward-thinking question, the type that BlackBerry (and every other manufacturer) does not answer.

I am very disappointed with the lack of auto on and off - I have had several Blackberry models over the past decade and all had this functionality - I cannot understand how the Q10 does not have this function. This is not Progress which to me means improving / expanding functions and not removing such a core function. This needs to be addressed ASAP.

Don't expect a response (let alone a fix) from BlackBerry -- they don't seem even to acknowledge the problem.
I have seen it suggested that the new operating system makes auto-off impossible (is this true, BlackBerry?), if so, is it possible to uninstall BlackBerry 10 and install BlackBerry OS on a Q10? I'm tempted to do this anyway, as I'm not at all impressed with the long list of "improvements" -- and certainly none of them are worth the hobson'schoice of missed calls or interrupted sleep.

Employer "upgraded" us to the BB Q10. Among other disappointments, the very basic feature of "automatic on" has been lost, which in practical terms means I have to go out and buy an alarm clock and bring it with me when I travel. Who makes these decisions?

I am very sad to not have this function on the new classic. When you are on call at work and don't want to be disturbed between 9pm and 6 am, this is why you need the function, please find a way to bring it back.

What better reason to have an auto shut off/on for the Q10 than it's what the CUSTOMER wants??? Since this feature was available in older models, what is so difficult about keeping the feature on in your newer models? Obviously this isn't an isolated request just by reading the posts on this forum. Saving on battery, prolonging the not-as-smart-anymore phone life, not having your sleep disturbed by frequent notifications, maintaining your personal and professional efficiency by having the phone turn when it is supposed to ... are these not reasonable justification enough?
