    Yes! Bring back disable autosave and exit without saving. Honestly dont even want to play the game like this cause as said above it takes away the ability to experiment. I always play hard survival so on this version of you wanna try something your stuck with it or you waste a lot of supplies. I love minecraft but this ruins it.

    I am LIVID right now!  Words can not properly describe how frustrated I am!  I had spent hours crafting diamond equipment and enchanting them to optimize them in as best as I could, and after a while, I find a Desert Temple.  It's the first one I ever found, I had never been in them before, and I went to explore.  After carefully finding a way to make it down to the treasure, Before I even check all the chests, I get curious and step on the pressure plate.  Seconds later, KABOOM!  I'M DEAD!  

    I WAS going to go back to the my last save since the last time I died I was playing the Wii U version, and now playing on the Switch.  BUT NO!  Instead it SAVES MY LOSS and punishes me to have to start over finding diamonds, getting the enchantments, and using up MORE time that I DO NOT HAVE!

    WHY WOULD ANYONE THINK THIS AUTOSAVE THING WHEN YOU DIE IS A GOOD IDEA?!  LET US GO BACK TO OUR LAST SAVE LIKE GAMES HAVE ALWAYS ALLOWED US TO IN THE PAST!  GOING BACK TO YOUR LAST SAVE SHOULD NOT BE A CHEAT!  IT'S SOMETHING GAMES HAVE ALWAYS ALLOWED US TO DO AND I HAVE NEVER...

    EVER...

    EEEEEVER...

    HEARD OF A GAME THAT SAVES A LOSS OF PROGRESS AUTOMATICALLY!  Maybe I'm just too old but I'm trying to connect with my nephew through Minecraft, and all this STUPID auto-save bologna does is make me WASTE MY TIME!

    I want to see this fixed PRONTO!

    As the owner of a xbox 360 TU12 world that transferred to xbox one, I have invested an infinite amount of time along with many members of my community world. It is unacceptable to allow a highly prized project of this magnitude to deal with the risks of autosave and saving on exit. I have dealt with many kinds of people that cause many damages, and without these features being added, it would be a loss. I am not creating a copy everytime I load it and I am not going to Bedrock until these features are realized by the developers.

    You covered all the reasons why we need optional auto-save, I hope it gets added soon, minecraft just isn't the same without it.

    This is one of the MAJOR reasons why myself, friends, family and countless others stick to the Xbox One Edition of Minecraft. This 'new' Minecraft feels more like a downgrade. Not having the option to disable autosave alone is just ridiculous.

    Why is this issue not being attended

    From pc, 360 and one, If its not broke dont fix it. The disable autosave was a simple and near perfect mechanic to counter mishaps unless you failed to save for hours. The copy world mechanic does 2 things wrong. One you have to exit the game in order to copy kicking all your players out and 2 it automatically changes the name and is saved as a seperate version of the world.

    The best question in this matter is why was manual saving removed from minecraft. On top of the all new gui and hard to use menus in bedrock it was decided that manual saving was bad, how so and why.

    Please give back disable auto-save. I've had several instances of saving a game and coming back to load into a "you died" screen, or just no inventory. I'm not saving on dangerous edges, or weird spots. I save/exit in a house i took over from a village. Disable auto-save allows us to play and if we die because of a bug we don't lose everything.

    Please bring back disable-auto save without disabling achievements. Some people say who needs achievements? it is not the achievements as much as being able to show you built something amazing without dipping into creative mode. If the game was bug free, then sure....BUT it is very buggy and I have died too many times.... I don't even want to play anymore without it. So until it is brought back.... Good-bye Minecraft, at least until you fix this issue.

    It’s not a cheat?!? if you die you have to restart whereyou last saved regardless. it’s a serious problem and like most said the game just is not the same. without this feature i will not play minecraft again.

    100% agree. I've just moved over to bedrock from PS4 and not being able to disable autosave is hindering my experience, not least because of the constant lag spikes the autosave gives. With the current issues I'm experiencing I think I may just go back to the PS4 legacy edition. For my money it's superior, at least for the moment.

    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

    For the two scenarios provided, I agree that everyone should be able to experiment equally in their game without being limited by their platforms. Not sure if allowing player to disable autosave is the right solution, but there should be a solution.

    The interruptions scenario however does not really match to this suggestion. First, everyone has distractions and interruptions, not sure why you'd think that only applies to console. Second, not saving the world isn't a solution tot he interruptions. The solution for interruptions is to be able to pause the game. For which I had posted a suggestion here: https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360009305432-Ability-to-pause-single-player-games-Bedrock-

    I don't see how just remaking the exact behavior of an Xbox one legacy world and its saves being a cheat. I we really going to die on this hill? Do you care that much about achievements and "Minecraft honesty" to not allow EVERYONE this feature? I see a lot more good with change not being a cheat than any real bad.

    Well this would be useful people can use it to undo a death in survival as far as the exit saving aspect goes.

    Additional comment: Autosave causes the game to lag. This is noticed as animals, players, and blocks not moving or being interacted with. FPS (Frames Per Second) also take a noticeable drop during Autosave. Autosave does not need to happen every 20 seconds, and Bedrock player enjoyment suffers greatly from this. Legacy Console has Disable Autosave, Exit Without Saving, and Autosave Timers being set from 5 minutes to 30 minutes. Multiplayer is barely enjoyable on Bedrock because of mandatory Autosave. All I can ask is please, expedite this feature from Under Review to Feature Added.

    I would like to see the option to exit without saving and disable auto save. My 8 year old and I play split screen on ps4. He likes to mess about on our survival world when I'm at work, so I have to amend stuff when I get back it.

    Yes, specially now that Ps4 has bedrock... I never play with autosaving, because my town has a bad electricity connection, so usually the light goes off.. I don't know if this happens with other plataforms where people play minecraft, but in Ps4 if it is autosaving, and power goes off... the data gets corrupted and the world basically gets destroyed...

    So it is a necesity in Ps4 to be able to disable autosave... I don't want to spend hundreds of hours in a save... and then loose all my data unless I make thousands of copies that last like 5 minutes to be made...

    Is anyone going to fix this issue, or are they ignoring thousands of people?

    Gotta admit, would not have downgraded from my 360 version had i known how screwed this autosave and no pause BS is. 

    Please fix, idc if i can play cross platform or not.

    Right now ive wasted money on this trash.

    I have deleted the PS4 version of Minecraft because of this issue.  Should they add it back (why they removed it, I'll never know!!), I may spend money on the game again.  Really really glad I didn't buy it for my new Switch like I was going to.

    I strongly agree that you shouldn’t have to save when you leave the game, at least for CREATIVE. It wouldn’t matter if you accidentally duplicated things because you already have it all. Some of my worlds I have made on my own in creative, like mini games. I have to exit without saving or the world will be ruined. Love bedrock and everything it has to offer but not being able to disable automatic save is awful. I personally play Minecraft with my much younger siblings, mistakes come often but I love playing the game with them. Now I’m worried for my world that I’ve had for almost 2 years, I really hate the idea of not letting them play anymore just for something I could have just left without saving for.

    People always say I don’t like this because you can reload to before you die it’s like they don’t understand that we’re asking for the option to turn it on and off so if you don’t like it you can turn it off and honestly I wouldn’t mind if it’s considered a cheat in fact I think it should be mainly because it’s almost like god mode but a lot of people want this and even the people who don’t want it will have uses for it they just don’t understand the importance to some people like a lot of creative maps and all the people who got Minecraft in the past 2 years will never know what it’s like to build mini games with friends it used to be such a great feature also I think I found out why they removed it because you have to buy realms in order to have an autosave feature and that’s enough for some people to buy it although I don’t think I’m putting any more time or money into the game I’ve always been a builder and rarely a survivor but my building days have ended until they fix the clearly broken game

    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?

    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

    Isn’t that one of the uses of duplicating worlds as backups?  I started doing that after I rode my horse over the edge of a ravine and into a lake of lava while carrying all of my valuables.

    And OtakuMan25, all of us have had our total wipe-outs while playing survival.  I was carrying literally all I had in the above situation and I had my bout of shouting at the iPad also.

    Basically I wish to ask if a stand alone save feature could be added.

    As many times I have played I have wanted to save my gameplay as Im nearing a dangerious place (near lava) or accomplished a (very long build session) only to either stop and exit/save or die in the most common cases and lose everything as the game saves the moment I decide to leave or try to recover what Ive lost.

    In some rare cases the ext/save function has trapped me or placed my character in a situtation where I can do little or nothing, in those cases I have had to start a new world every time.

    I hope the idea of a stand alone SAVE GAME function will be considered for addition to the game.

    Thank You,

    I would like if mojang can bringing an update on minecraft aquamarine world to give a option to disable AUTOSAVE in the settings same as the xbox one edition cause if you died then you lost all your  XP you gather then you have to start all over again to gather your XP
