    My pearl goes on at 5am and goes off at 9pm everyday.

    Does auto on/off really save battery power? I think that's what it is mean't for.

    Turning it off would be like shutting down half if my brain. No can do.

    Never used the on/off feature. If you don't want it to ring, just put it on silence.

    Also, my schedule changes too much so there is really no way to know when I may be sleeping on any given day.
    As always, just my opinion...

    I never use it - mine is always on - old habbit from my last job when I needed to be available anytime the site was open.

    Hubby uses it to turn his off at night.

    I would use the auto off/on but since the email+sms time stamps get messed up I don't. Leaving it on silent is just the same.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Mine goes off at 3 AM and turns back on at 7 AM. Just enough to fully recharge the battery.

    oops I was being sarcastic and clicked the wrong one, although it doesn't look like it will mess up the polls too much.

    I chose what's on/off...again sarcastic. But true answer is it NEVER goes off! someone said it's like half their brain...for think chickie it's my ENTIRE brain

    I don't wanna miss anyc calls! Lol. I switch profiles at night or weekends. I have a night profile that rings softly and doesn't beep in incoming emails. And a weekend profile that doesn't ring for work calls or beep at work email. RIM should include a built in profile switcher. I tried the profile-switcher app yo can download and it was buggy so I canned it. Please RIM, replace auto on/off with an auto profile switching app. Thanks.

    So far most of us voted "on 247" which implied addiction
