Power Switch

Save power by turning off your device's screen whenever you shut the case!

Power Switch is a tool for devices with cases - somewhat like the SmartCover, it will turn off the screen when you shut the case.

If you have a device with poor battery life, Power Switch can save tons of juice by switching it off entirely after a given amount of time asleep.

Features:


- Sleep seconds after shutting case
- Automatic shutdown
- Set up a schedule using Night Mode
- Configure sensor sensitivity
- Facedown to turn screen off
- Persistent notification
- Uses almost no power

The app has gone through an extensive testing process here at XDA under another name. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen, you're the best!

However, this testing showed that some features of that app were not all that useful, and some were conspicuously absent. To save both you and us a lot of grief, we made the second-generation Killswitch.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please use this thread. I daresay Im known as a kindly developer always open to suggestions.

If you want to upgrade from Killswitch, send an email to the address in my signature containing the words "KILLSWITCH REFUND" and the order numbers of both Killswitch and Power Switch. I will then refund you the cost of Killswitch, and you will have Power Switch.

Lite
This version limits the cool down timer - it works just as well, but doesnt save as much juice!

Has all the juice-saving power and customization!

Anything to report? Issues? Suggestions?

FIY next feature will be a cool sound as it powers down the screen... should be pretty cool!

Little different but you asked for ideas ...

How about a turn off when you turn over the phone. On when you pick it up.

Or -
Power off when you shake right-left and On when shake up-down.
(of course that would look a bit funny if watching someone from the back)

Love my Thunderbolt alot - just concerned about every time hitting the power button on and/or off.
Know that little button won't last forever.
