I dont know if this has been convered or not, but coming from a BB tour, I like having the auto on/off feature. I had it set so that I could have it turn off around 2am, and back on at 7am. It was perfect to keep me from drunk dialing or texting after bar close. It was also great when I forget to turn off the volume when I went to bed. It sucks getting woke up at 4am by a bunch of spam email.
Is there an Auto on/off for andriod.

Don't believe so. When the phone is off... it is OFF. Blackberries are only off when the battery is removed. When turning off through the menu, they are really in a deep standby.
My suggest would be to download an app that lets you set rings/notifications based on date/time.

I'm also coming from a BB and wish that you could do this. My solution has been to put the phone into airplane mode when I go to sleep, that way no incoming calls/texts/emails will wake me up, however I can leave the volume on loud so that my alarm does wake me up.Matt

CT Scheduler does what you need but it is still in beta and they are working on the power off issue. I have used this app for years and it is incredible.
It controls BT on off, ringer volume, auto sms, airplane mode, etc.
LOVE IT and the developers are top notch.

I'll throw in a suggestion for Tasker. It allows for just about any scheduling scenario you can think of. Not sure if it will do exactly what you are asking, but you could definitely schedule the phone to be in airplane mode or something to prevent the drunk dialing thing, and also turn off the ringer at the same time.
