    Question Is there an app for that?

    On my Blackberry you could set it to power off and on at different times for weekdays and weekends. Is there an app to do that for HTC (dunno what model it is)? I can find power saving apps but cant seem to find one that actually switches the phone on and off?

    dont think its possible to turn it completely off and back on via third party app

    would turning airplane mode on and off work for you?

    EDIT: these guys seem to agree. but maybe theres something out there. they mention ZDbox

    I've got the silent sleep thing which at least shuts it up, but for battery saving I'd prefer it to switch off and on completely. Looks like i'll just have to find a cheap app killer that works at set times. Cheers anyway.

    If it's completely off, how can it turn itself back on?

    That's clever.

    They can't be completely off then. There must be a minimal charge to keep the timer going

    Correct, there is still a power drain, it's just another standby mode.
