    Is there an application that will turn the power off and on automatically at preset times? I would like to have the power off after a set time (e.g. 2 am) at night and power back on in the morning. I notice that my battery only reaches full charge with the power off. (Sorry if this is a new-bee question, but could not find this topic in searching the site.) Thanks.

    Something like that would certainly simplify the plug-it-in-at-bedtime-power-down-during-breakfast routine, wouldn't it? I found something called "Power Off" in the Market, but it requires root. :(

    Yeah, there are power-off apps, but I am pretty sure they all require root.

    There shouldn't be any power-on apps, because a powered-off phone is just a brick, it has no timed start feature like pc BIOS'es do. :eek:

    I am sure you are correct. I had this feature with my former Palm Treos and Centro phones (Phone Tecnician app) that allowed scheduled off and ons, and hoped the Adndroid phones had this ability. Thanks.
