@nfix01, welcome to the forum

I'm afraid that you'd find this particular feature is not only the same on more recent androids, but is also the same on an iPhone.

I had an old at&t pantech link 7040 phone i had set the alarm to go off every day at 4:30 am except sunday. I could completely kill the battery to were the phone wouldnt turn on then plug it in so it could charge. it would turn itself on set off the alarm then ask if you wanted it to stay on or turn off again. If i could find an app like that it would be great.

You can't do that with an app. The app only works if the phone is running Android, and if it's off then the OS isn't running, and hence neither is the app.

If you have hardware which supports such a feature then an app can set it. But that's a different matter. If your phone doesn't have something built into it to support this feature then no android app can add it.

I understand your question. Even my awful blackberry turned on from being completely powered down when the alarm kicked on. But every new phone I've had since doesn't. Gotta keep a charger nearby

Stick it in airplane mode and it will use very little power (unless you have some rogue app).
