Automatically turn off your BlackBerry to save battery
What are you doing to save precious BlackBerry battery life? It seems everyone has their methods for keeping that bar as full as possible. A low battery indicator is no good for the battery and no good for our nerves. Things like dimming the backlight or auto-locking your BlackBerry (so the backlight goes out faster) are examples of some things people do to conserve battery. Today we’ll go over another: scheduling automatic off and on times. The procedure is rather simple. Head to Options and then select the obvious option, Auto On/Off. Here you’ll see the schedule:
You can set it separately for weekends and weekdays, which I’m sure many BBGeeks appreciate. Just set the times you want your BlackBerry to shut off, and then select Enable. Save that up, and now your BlackBerry will shut off automatically at the designated times. In addition to saving battery life, you can use auto on/off to create a distraction-free environment for a certain part of the day. That’s what I use it for. Block out an hour and cut out all noise to focus on one thing. It’s quite refreshing to not have my BlackBerry beep or buzz during that hour.
