Default Sweep to wake

Like the idea of a gesture to sleep and wake your LTEvo but don't want to hassle a custom kernel?

KOLIO turned me on to this - Check out "Proximity Screen Off Lite"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.itsme4ucz.screenoff

Works great on our phones, doesn't cause sleep issues.

Some timing combinations seem flaky. I'm on 2 seconds to sleep, 1 second to wake.

I'm digging it.

Kinda reminds me of Force Control. Though Force Control is for music. Pretty neat.

I liked the sweep to wake option ith the kernels we have. Only downfall was obviously battery drain. Going to give this a try, thanks for mentioning this EM.

The app warns that it may keep your phone awake, etc etc.

Check out how it doesn't.

This is from this morning, note the flat battery line and inactivity when the screen is off.

PS - the active battery drain is higher than graphs I've shown before - this is running a regime where I can drop 15%/hour screen on. Normal for what I was doing.

O man I'm all over this now. That graph is enough for me. Once I get home I'm loading this up. Give it a test run for a day and see where I'm at.

It's pretty interesting. Typically for me, I just installed it, used it and then went to the instructions.

At first I was covering the sensor, but - duh - proximity is all it takes.

Very cool!

I went to that exact same place.

WifelyMon paused hard when she saw me do the first time.

Of course I had to tell her - This is not the phone you're looking for.

Haha...yea, my wife was less impressed.
"Hey baby, check THIS out [waves hand - phone lights up]. Pretty slick, huh? Just let me know when you're ready to get a real phone. [she's a hardcore Apple nut]"

"That's nice. What would you like to do for dinner?"

...I could make my phone levitate and she wouldn't bat an eye.

Oh exactly - WifelyMon was questioning me with that look, not admiring the feature.
