Then the question is why you want to uncheck the "All day" checkbox.
An event with DATE value (instead of default DATE-TIME) is considered as
all day event.

Unchecking the "All day" checkbox needs to add time to the interface and
if it adds the default business start/end then the result is consistent (the event
type is changed but the meaning is the same).
