    Default Nova launcher disables tap to wake/sleep

    I finally got my phone set up the way I wanted it using nova launcher and some icon themes. The first thing I tested was the tap to wake/sleep as I was disappointed to find out doesn't work. Does anyone using nova launcher have it working and can tell me how to do it?

    I'd be willing to get a different launcher if it works with the tap feature but my first choice is to get it working with nova. Is anyone else using a custom launcher and the tap feature is working?

    Do you have Nova Prime/paid version?

    Sorry, don't mean to hijack your thread, but does anyone know if the quick circle still works with Nova Launcher?

    I have the paid version.

    From the beginning tap-to-wake worked fine, but tap-to-sleep was broken.

    I ended up downloading an app called "Screen Off and Lock." After installing, you can then use Nova (in the gestures menu) to run SOaL on a double-tap. Been working perfectly since setting that up.

    You can also tap the status bar at the top the screen even with a Nova launcher.

    I actually didn't try the tap to sleep, my bad. I just tried it for the first tone and it worked like you said. So it's just the tap to sleep that's broke. I hope they fix nova but I can give that app a try if it's my only option.

    I dl'ed the Screen Off app, set it to the double tap gesture, and it works perfectly!

    I liked the LG ui, but missed the customization of Nova. Now, everything is perfect!

    I don't think it's a defect with Nova; it could be enhanced with the option to assign a screen off action to the double-tap gesture, but I don't think it's something they need to fix. I'd say it's probably just the LG folks that are noticing its absence.

    Anyway, the Screen Off and Lock workaround has been on my G3 since day 1 and I have zero issues with it. Seamless (and you can hide the app from your drawer w/ Nova if you REALLY want to pretend it's not there!).
