Default Ways to switch off the screen without using the power button?

Could you tell me a few ways to switch off the screen without using the power button?
(Only Off)

1)
On some Roms (CM11) double tap the status bar - but the bar is quite small, so I am often not hitting.

2)
Power Button Widget - creates a button.
Problem is: My homescreen is full. I can create an invisible button above another widget, but this is not always working (Holo Launcher HD)

3)
Gesture with the activity of Power Button WIdget.
Holo Launcher force closes on my Nexus 4.


Are there other ways?
Rubik ROM with Rubik Apps and Rubik kernel r24

There are Xposed modules that use the double-tap status bar function.

There are apps available that use the proximity sensor to do the same sort of thing by waving over it and/or tapping it.
Relax, go nutz!
