    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. :D

    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.

    I went to that exact same place. :D

    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. :D
