Default Bedside Mode Question 2

Please Login to Remove!

How can one set the BB so that it displays the Clock and enters Bedside Mode automatically when connected to a charger only during certain hours and, during all other hours, **does nothing** when connected to a charger (i.e., does not display the Clock) ?

I thought OS 5's "Restrict to Certain Hours" feature in the "When Charging" section of the Clock application's Options would do that, but it does not. I understand that, as it is, the "Restrict to Certain Hours" feature is useful for people who do want the Clock Display during the day and want to ensure that it is bright and that the radio is not turned off during the day (if they've set their Bedside Mode to turn the radio off).

The reason I would like to do what I am asking about is because (i) I do *not* want the BB to automatically Display Clock or Enter Bedside Mode when placed in the charging cradle at my desk during the day, but (ii) I do want it to automatically go into Bedside Mode (with clock display) when charging at night after, say, 10pm, and (iii) Manually re-setting the "Clock > Options > When Charging" setting twice a day between "Do Nothing" and "Enter Bedside Mode" is a real nuisance, as far as BB use goes. The restrict-to-certain-hours feature was requested by different posters back in the early days of the Clock display, and I thought RIM had finally included it via the "Restrict to Certain Hours" setting mentioned above, but it doesn't seem to do quite what the posters (or I) had in mind, unless I am missing something.

As far as I can tell there is no way to control the behavior automatically. However, you can set the clock to not display when charging and then start it when you go to bed, click the menu button and click "Enter Bedside Mode". It's easier than switching the setup options every time.

Thanks. That's helpful---easier than cycling through the options, for sure. (Of course, I'm still hoping that RIM utlimately will add clock display+bedside mode to what can be controlled by the "Restrict To Certain Hours" setting in the Clock's options.)
