My old Torch9800 had an auto-power off function which was really useful at night (and helped save battery life overnight) - I can't see where to do this on the Z10 - has that function been 'developed out'?

Thanks - that was what I had expected asI had looked everywhere for it! I'm new to this forum - is there a place to upload all the sugggested 'fixes' for the Z10 developers or add weight to suggestions already posted like this?

Another trial and error skrew up by Blackbery, so they finally add an "intelligent" alarm where you can select on which days of the week you want the alarm instead of having to systematically turn off the alarm on weekends and then on again, and for that, to make us pay, the remove the auo on/off option which used to help a lot of battery time. Great stuff! I have been a loyal Blackbery user for 12 years and the last of my friends to use one, but this Z10, though has a lot of potential of being a great device, makes me really angry at the Blackberry developers because they don't seem to respect their clients, it is ridiculous to make such mistakes and take their customer so lightly.

I agree that RIM is missing the boat by omitting the things in the Z10 that have kept people loyal. I have had some form of Blackberry since they first came out (currently still have the 9800) and was elated when RIM announced the Z10. I stayed loyal even when my wife bought an iPhone 5 and an iPad 4. I purchased my Z10 two days ago and I am already disappointed with the lack of common applications, but now I find that I can't set the phone for auto turn on and off, something I use religiously. I have been trying to get over the fact that the money management app I used on my 9800 is not supported on the Z10, I can't view my surveillance cameras on it, nor can I load any Verizon FIOS apps.
The new features such as the Hub and gesture based functions, are great and the browser is lightening fast. The unit is lightweight and comfortable to hold and use. However, I keep finding little omissions in the Z10's development that are bothersome. Fortunately I purchased my Z10 at Costco's and have 90 days to return it and right now it's looking like I might do so. Hopefully RIM will quickly address the issues that has kept its customer base loyal in the face of the "Apple Onslaught.)
