    True, but it saves battery turning it off.

    The rechargable batteries that come in BB are a great thing! And it time stamps the message from when the BB receives it. If you phone is off all night it doesnt technically recieive the message until you turn your phone on.

    ...plus, if you plug it in at night while you sleep, it has a fresh charge ready to go in the morning. Been doing that for many years and has saved my bacon a few times.
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?

    True, but still, the dimmed screen in bedside mode is kinda bright in a totally dark room.

    Does it remain dimmed for you? Mine is going completely dark after a few min, maybe you just need to check your settings...

    On your home screen set options/clock/when charging to "do nothing"!

    That should do the trick...
