Put second screen to sleep while holstered

    Well not sure if anyone's ran across this as I couldn't find anything on it in a search.

    But the second screen can be actively turned on in the settings and when holstered it will turn off.

    The trick is to have a holster that covers the proxy sensor thats located just to the right of the ear speaker.

    To get an idea of what I'm talking about, tap the power button so the main screen turns off but the second screen is on.
    Then place a finger over the sensor. You'll see the second screen turn off.

    I've tested it out with different clothes and leathers and get the same response. I also tried it out with my holsters material. Unfortunately for me, my holster leaves the sensor uncovered, but if I put the phone into it upside down, I see the second screen turn off.

    Hope this helps.

    That's a good option. Now SS can be active all the time, but when do not use the phone to turn with display down to save battery.

    With the new Marshmallow update (6.0) Doze will do that automatically when phone is not being used for a period of time. You cannot adjust it, it is built into 6.0.

    The way I described, turns it off instantly. No waiting time.
