Default Want to stop the alerts when I'm sleeping

So if I read this thread correctly, in order to not hear all my alerts for incoming messages without putting the Sound Setting to Mute (which cancels the sound of the Alarm), I simply need to put the Galaxy on Airplane Mode. I have tried activating the Mute When setting it Face Down but apparently that's only designed to stop a sound as it occurs, such as ringing while you are in a meeting. I can sit here with my phone face down and hear all my alerts all day. The Blackberry I just tossed out did have a setting for stopping the sounds of alerts only but leaving the clock functioning. Perhaps it's because the Clock is an App, and not a feature hard-coded into the phone, that this is required on the S3.
