    Anyone knows of an app either on blackberry world or android that powers on your device on schedule ? Like we used to have with BB7.

    Please don't waste my time with sleep mode answers

    You do realise that BB7 never really turned off when it "powered down"? It was essentially a sleep mode.

    Yeah BB7 sleep mode was better than BB10 sleep mode. For those trying to make me look stupid.

    Sleep =/= locking. Both phones can "locked" (shutting down the screen). Both phones tell you can turn them off, but only one of them actually powers off. The other one lies to you and goes to into sleep/hibernation.

    BlackBerry 10 has no sleep/hibernation, so there is no way BB7's implementation was better, if BB10 has no implementation. How would a device with no power power itself on?

    Way to totally miss the point. At least now you're bringing something to the conversation.

    The biggest advantage of BB7 and many agree with me, was that you could make yourself available to receive calls at a certain hour without making any further action after setting a time.

    You can use specific notifications programs to go from silent to available, but it means your phone isn't in hibernation then and that's what I want.

    Anyone who ever enjoyed the scheduled power ON/OFF ability of BB7 and earlier knows what am talking about.

    If you want to specify a period of time that notifications are off... use meeting mode in calendar. You can personalise as much as you want (each Monday between midnight and 6 am no calls and a different schedule for Tuesday...)

    That's what it's for... I think it's much better than "auto power" on.

    It can control your notifications during preset time periods.

    It's a technical limitation of the new phones and the OS, afaik. The old BB phones never fully turned off, that's why the features were possible. :-)

    Yeah, I remember, my old Nokia rang the morning alarm even when it was turned off.

    Found a bunch of apps for that. Too bad you weren't in my previous conversations. Still not as good as before.

    Why do you want your phone to go in hibernation? Not sure I'm following.... you just want it to hibernate for the sake of it?

    Well before, you turn the phone off and it hibernates, so you get no notification.

    Now you either can set yourself a scheduled meeting mode to silent notification, use bedside mode or just put it on silent.

    Honestly, I don't see the difference between bedside mode and "hibernation". Both has the radios turned off, both would save battery, both would allow the alarm to ring.

    But your phone doesn't wake up after the alarm rings.

    I feel I sleep better with my phone turned off. I wanted to test the difference between off/hibernate/ silent. I don't think you can understand unless you used to enjoy autopower on/off before.

    Yes I did use it before. It was the most horrible thing I ever used cause there was no way of knowing if the phone was dead or just hibernating.

    Also, to my surprise, the phone wasn't really off... it just shuts the screen off and the radios... so basically it is still draining battery... that got me clueless as to why make a "fake" off without having a real way to truly turn off the phone.

    Then I figured it out, it takes 10 mins to boot a BBOS phone... that's why they needed a fake off.

    Obviously nothing truly OFF can wake on it's own. And "enjoyed" was the key word. "Most horrible thing ever" ???? You're just trolling now...

    Trolling? I hate "turning off" the old BBOS phones cause it was just a fake off. You get nothing of the benefits of a reboot (memory doesn't get cleared, battery still draining) and you don't get the benefits of having the phone on silent (don't see if something tried to call or send messages)

    So yeah, it was the worse of both worlds. Tell me one advantage of having the old bbos phones "off" vs having a BB10 phone on bedside mode. There is none.
