Is there a way to enable alarm even if the mobile is switched OFF ?

Like we had in Nokia Mobiles ? Does this is supported in Android at all ?

Dear @ingbrzy,

I think i have used only latest SMART phones. before all these SMART phones comes into market, there was phones, (e.g. Nokia N73) which can wake up @ set alarm time even if its switched off.

But todays smartphones run Android and its a Linux based operating system. The OS needs to be fully active (and kernel running) to do jobs. So the phone must be on when you set an alarm.
