How can I schedule power on and off on an Android 2.3 tablet?

How can I schedule power on and off on Android 2.3 tablet? This feature is not available by default though it is exists in Android 4.0 phones. So, is there a way to enable this feature in 2.3 version of Android tablet ( HCL ME AM7A1_) , perhaps through an app? Please verify for version and functionality if app is found.

    I searched and didn't found anything much close to what you want.

    You can have a look at the app Power Schedule which can

    " set your phone to off while you sleep at night, so you're not bothered by any unwanted calls "

    as mentioned in its description.

      If such matters are kernels problem, and require rooting, then would automation apps help?

      Power off and reboot functionality are supported by Timer app,as mentioned by Hovsep.

      But I don't know whether the reboot function or nay other will allow you to auto schedule power on/off your device.I didn't even found any such root app either.

      " - Switching off the device is not possible. Also Android HW and SW as of now does not support device wake-up alarms i.e. you cannot expect the functionality of powering up the device from a power off state like you do in BB/Nokia, etc.

      - To shutdown the device, you need root access. ....

      Also,there was a similar project being envisioned but cancelled due to lack of skilled developers.

    Perhaps using Tasker

    Tasker For Android: A Mobile App That Caters to Your Every Whim

    Power Schedule
    Android 2.1 and UP

    Auto On-Off (FREE)
    Android 1.6 and UP
