    There is an app that enables double tap to wake but I believe you have to be rooted to use it. On the pay store it is called nexus 6 double tap to wake. There are also custom Roms which allow you to double tap the nav bar or status bar to sleep, as well as kernels which enable double tap to wake.

    Search google for Nexus Root Toolkit and the first result from WugFresh should pop up. Download, follow instructions, easy.

    However, I believe any such app would be a battery killer. The only way this can work (other than a device which has hardware specifically designed for this purpose) is to keep the phone's cpu "alive and listening" (for screen taps) at all times, 24/7.

    Like I said, a battery killer.

    Would it require any more processing power than Cell Standby or Ambient Display? The cpu's going to be "alive" 24/7 regardless, as long as the phone's powered on.
