    I guess you need an app that can do screenshot based on a timer You can also use the BB10 Device Simulator and take the screenshot from your computer...

    What's the goal ? Want to use it to build a new "face" for a smartwatch ?

    Isn't it just the same method to take a screenshot? Isn't it irrelevant what mode the phone is in? That is, hit the volume up and down buttons at the same time. I just tried it on my phone and it worked while in bedside mode.

    You're right, it works when you slide the bedside mode from the lock screen. But it doesn't work if you start it through the Quick Settings.

    Wait, are you talking about accessing bedside mode or taking a screen shot while in bedside mode?

    The OP wants to take a screenshot while in Bedside Mode. That's what I understood. And I can take a screenshot only if the Bedside Mode is activated by a swipe from the top while the phone is locked. If you activate the Bedside Mode via the Quick Settings, you can't take a screenshot. Keys are not responsive. We'll, it's the case on Q10SQN100-3/10.2.1.3442

    Okay, I've got you now. I access bedside mode through the clock app.

    No..
    To get to Bedside Mode, you lock the phone and then swipe down from the top bezel with the screen on.

    To leave Bedside mode just swipe up from the bezel.

    My screenshot worked on the Passport..

    Didn't know that! I guess that'd be because i set my quick settings to everything i liked in the order i liked and never touched it since!

    Never been a fan of Bedside mode but i can understand why people like it :P

    Okay, so now that you have that figured out , what was the purpose of taking the screen shot to begin with?

    That is totally strange that the ability to take a screen shot in bedside mode depends on how you got to it. Yes, for me only works if I enter it from clock app, which I have never done before (always either from lock screen or quick settings, both of which do not take screen shot)

    Q10SQN100-1/10.2.1.3442.

    Anyways, yes, why do you want to do this? Not a very exciting screen shot :-)
