Hello,

Wondering if I use a game and need to tap 2 times quickly on screen during the game, will phone switch off?

Ive just tried it on song pop and it doesnt turn the screen off....I believe it needs to be on a blank part of the homescreen or on the notification bar area at the top of the screen
Orange's customer service slogan should be

"We're not satisfied until you're not satisfied"

Knock off only works on the home screen (and the status bar). It would be quite silly otherwise since you wouldn't be able to double tap to zoom etc.

I can also see it turning the screen off when using your keyboard lol. It definitely sounds like a nice feature - especially considering the buttons are on the back. It would be annoying to have to pick your phone up off of a table or desk to turn the screen on sometimes.
