    And to manually save at any time as well.

    I voted for this. But here's the thing, I've played both Xbox 360 back when exit without saving existed and I currently play Java edition. I'm kind of torn on it, it is useful for accidental deaths and such, but also, that's the point of survival. You need to survive and that kind of defeats the purpose. Although it does bring me back to the good ol days and that's why I voted for it.

    I literally don’t play Minecraft anymore because there’s no exit without saving. It’s not that I’m bad at survival, it’s that other people are bad at building. And I don’t like being mean but now I have to say “No, I can’t let you build because you’re bad at it.” That’s really rugged to even just type and now I have to say that to my cousin at some point because he keeps wanting to play on a specific world that I have. I don’t wanna hurt feelingssss

    If you cannot disable automatic saving this game loses its charm. Manual saving and the "exit without saving" option are essential to experience things in survival mode. When you spend many hours to get something and you can't experiment for fear of losing it the whole game is no longer fun and if it stops being fun, what is the use of a game?

    It's UN-NERVING working on collecting things in the game to lose it all due to the autosave on my recently purchased Xbox One system. In SURVIVAL I had a full inventory and needed to move a CHEST that was also full to another location. I ITEM DROPPED MY ENTIRE INVENTORY, went to the chest, broke it and collected all the items. I STEPPED AWAY FOR A FEW MINUTES, finished relocating the chest and items that were in it, went back to where I left my inventory items and they were all gone. I immediately shut down my console and restarted it, went back to my world and everything was still gone. THAT BURNS MY BISCUITS! One the Xbox 360 I can disable autosave OR change the interval to which it autosaves, I DON'T HAVE THAT OPTION NOW? WHAT DIPSTICK REMOVED THAT OPTION, AND WHY? BAD, BAD, HORRIBLE IDEA! PLEASE RETURN THAT OPTION!

    Also, I can't upload my Xbox 360 game saves to the Xbox One even after following all steps CORRECTLY! Xbox one isn't "SYNCING OLD WORLDS".

    This is the reason why I refuse to play the upgraded version. I’m on 92 levels and I want to save them for something special. The thought of dying and going back to zero just isn’t appealing

    This should definitely be a feature across all versions of Minecraft. Another useful ability would be to have the option to change how often autosave happens. This was an option in the PS4 Edition, but I can no longer find it with the Bedrock Update. Autosave happens every 30 seconds to a minute on my world, which makes a giant lag spike each time it starts and stops, which has been extremely annoying. Every time I have lost power, the world just corrupted, making these constant autosaves useless.

    I play the Ps4 Edition version because of the autosave on the bedrock version and there is nothing worse than losing an item that you worked hard and spent alot of time obtaining just to loss it to a bug, and then the autosave saves and well bye bye item, forever lost, without autosave this loss is barely an inconvenience lol

    I used to play almost everyday. Now I can’t stand playing minecraft. Trying really hard to get into the bedrock edition but not having the ability to turn autosave off is ridiculous. The whole reason I play on console is because it’s different then PC. I liked that I could choose my save settings. I’m so glad that I’m not the only one having this experience. We should all stop playing till these changes are made. Won’t be hard for me.

    To add to this suggestion, the ability to set the autosave timer should also be added. I remember it being an option in the PS4 Edition, but not in the updated Bedrock version. Autosave happens on my world every 30-60 seconds which is incredibly annoying because it lags every time it starts. So once or twice every minute I get a lag spike that lasts for a few seconds.

    I always thought it should be similar to Zelda Breath of the wild were it auto saves but you can go back to whatever save you want so if you die you just load the last auto save before you died

    PLEASE give back the Manual Save option!  I haven't played Minecraft since you removed the feature and REFUSE to play until it is brought back. I log in EVERY update to see if it has been put back, as soon as I find out it hasn't, I close the game and wait until the next update.  I have purchased this game on 3 different systems and now don't play on ANY of them. The game simply SUCKS without being able to save when I want/need instead of ONLY being able to autosave OR save on exit !!

    Agreed, I think the current Bedrock system of auto saving is flawed, and MUST be changed. It actively punishes people who experiment, and regardless of world backup capabilities the old system worked so much better, and I think that auto saving upon death is a mechanic, regardless of the previous should be removed. If I die because I wanted to TRY something I should not have to live with that mistake for the rest of that world. Please fix this it is absolutely necessary. I have thrown away countless worlds because this "feature" get rid of it!

    My game had a glitch appear which caused endless holes and was very disappointed, I couldn’t exit without saving so the holes wouldn’t be there.

    It is terrible to not have the ability to quit without saving.  There is no good reason to not have it.  It makes the game a constant stresser when playing with my kids.  Before if someone made a big mistake we were able to close without saving and it was not a problem.  Now everyone is feeling anxious about freely exploring and trying things out.  Fix this!

    I just lost around 48 hours total of work, because a zombie killed me while afk. It was PAUSED AND I WAS THE ONLY ONE ON!!! I was in a single player world, no realms, and lost a looting III sharpness III NETHERITE SWORD, a shulker box full of goodies, 2 Thorns III enchanted books, an Efficiency IV Silk touch I Netherite shovel, a Silk touch netherite pickaxe,  an un breaking elytra, and a full set of enchanted netherite armon (not the chest plate though) and also 8 golden Apples. I am so pissed that I almost rage quit and actually am considering deleting the world out of rage. PLEASE FIX THIS, OR AT LEAST ADD A BACKUP FILE YOU CAN ACCESS TO A CLOUD ACCOUNT Or something, like ‘play world saved on March 28 2020’. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I pretty hate the autosave because it's very bad when you die and loose all of your things and then you can't have them back because of that I am playing on PS4 and it hurts when you remember the old times when you could save and load like in a NORMAL GAME and I don't think that it should be as cheating because it's part of the game and not some unplayeble game so that's why I vote for fixing the autosave mechanic

    I was coming on the post the same issue. I HATE that this option was taken away when PlayStation joined cross-platform play. I want the option to choose!! Sometimes I want the option the play around or search for new biomes... Without effecting my world or creating a copy world. I need this now! We had it before and it should not have been removed for cross-platform. It makes me want to quit Minecraft all together.

    I accidentally /filled 36000 blocks and lost a ton of progress and got so sad when I realized I couldn't quit without saving. It was my fault though, but having this feature could be super helpful for when huge mistakes like this happen! Luckily I was able to recover and quickly made a copy of the world.

    I think this should be on Java too. I've had two command block worlds where I did something stupid with repeating command blocks, and now I'm essentially banned from those singleplayer worlds. Also, as someone who played on Xbox 360 until the very end (F's in the chat for Legacy Console Editions), I can heavily relate to exiting without saving to cheat death, sometimes even turning off the console when it started to autosave.

    You must have a lot of games on your Xbox or an old Xbox, I have Xbox One and I can copy worlds in 1 second, and exiting without saving should only be allowed on worlds with cheats

    I logged on to play minecraft today. After about 4 different crashes (which used to be unheard of, clearly not anymore) and insanely long loading screens, I realized you can't even turn off autosave anymore? Seriously? It doesn't exactly help when your forced "exit and save" takes 5 minutes to finish.

    And here I was about to drop some money at the minecraft store. I've been playing since I had a ps3 but I'm done. When you start taking away common sense features you lose credibility as a developer. Seriously what a bafflingly stupid move.

    I think this should be labeled as a Java Parity issue
