Software Request - Scheduled Energy Save Mode

What's the best way to request a new feature?

It would be great to include an energy saver mode schedule that will shut down systems when you don't need the car, and then energize everything when in time for when you're ready.

My Model X sits in an underground garage Monday through Thursday. During that time, the MX gets no LTE reception and I cannot check on it via the app. Since I can't communicate with it anyway, whenever I think to do it, I put it into energy save mode to minimize phantom drain. When I do this the parking attendants complain that it can take several minutes to boot the systems when they go to pull the car around. Which means, no backup camera and one dinged bumper so far.

Helpful... yes?

I don't think there's a formal way to do it, but what I do is log into the account, go to general support inquiry, and I put my feature request in there. I do think your request is good for several reasons. You can also turn off "Always Connected" and leave energy saving mode off. It'll still drain, but not nearly as much.
