Default Is there an app that turns the screen off but doesn't lock the phone?

I'm currently using an app called Screen Off and Lock from the Play Store:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nofflockdonate

The problem is that whenever I hit the widget to turn the screen off, it locks the device even though I have a trusted bluetooth device connected. If I just push the power button to turn the screen off, the trusted bluetooth device feature works fine and it does not prompt me for my PIN when I turn the screen on.

So I'm looking for a similar app that turns the screen off but does NOT lock it.

there is a non-root method.

ROOT REQUIRED (Non-root method also available but not as effective & battery saving as root)
worth a shot.
