    Please someone who knows, explain me.
    Like
    does it drain battery when turned on?
    Where does the command saved so it could auto power on (which memory?) ?
    Or maybe the phone isn't actually powered off?

    Please kindly explain, since I never turned my phone off for it is inconvenience to me.
    But I'm thinking that maybe this feature would help in preserving my battery and the phone itself, that's why I want to know more.
    Thx.

    why are you taking to too serius that in which part of memmory it holds data for this



    its simple funtion to auto poweroff phone when you not using it


    ofcourse its fully poweroff and yes it saves battery coz phone is shutdown



    function itself doesnt consume battery

    its just like trigger as you perfome with power button

    Since you are studying IT, I would suggest you to find this out on your own or through Google search.

    There were some mobile phones (few years b4 itself) which used to sound alarm even if the phone was switched off.
    May be you can start your analysis here.

    Better not to use it, if ur phone is meant for personal use, ur near and dear ones might feel the pinch.

    Oh I want to ask this too, do you know how the power off alarm works?
    I've never used it before,
    So I'm planning my schedule like this :
    My morning alarm is set at 4 am
    My auto turn off phone is at 11.59 pm
    My auto turn on phone is at 6 am,

    My question is how things work between the power off alarm and the phone's auto turn on?

    Thx.

    alrams sound always and even if phone is switched off

    flag is triggered on kernel level and phone is turned onn for alarms


    so this will wake phone first on alarm and then on 6 am permamanetly

    And try it yourself

    switch off your phone ans see if phone is still onn after alarm or it power off after snoozing or cancelling..

    Seems to me like this


    even if phone remains power on after alarm

    this will not interfare with power on scheduled

    it will be cancelled


    ONLY IF PHONE REMAINS SWITCHED ON AFTER ALARMS

    unless again power on itself at 6

    Some mobile phones had this feature (alerts for alarm even when phone is switched off) years before.

    My phone Power switch is dead. My phone battery is drained completely and the phone got switched OFF. Will this scheduled ON feature work in my scenario (once I charge the phone?)
