    I like to fall asleep listening to streaming radio but I don't like leaving my phone running all night and having to charge it in the morning. Is there an app that shuts off the phone after x number of minutes or at a specific time? Thanks.

    Should be a few (dunno of any off the top of my head though) but you would most definitely need root for that.

    Can always look at Tasker too -- and put the phone into some kinda "low battery" state (turn off Bluetooth/WiFi/3G radios, turn off background data sync, etc...)

    If you use the Airplane mode (eventually auto-scheduled) then there is no need to shut down the phone. If I do that, then my phone uses just 2% battery power over night. I can definitely leave with that. :)
