y'know how we have Double Tap to Wake but not exactly to Sleep so here's a little workaround.

I personally set my launcher's Double Tap gesture to launch the Lock Screen app and it's been working around nicely.

other options would be widget/desktop shortcut/notification bar.

here it is, do check it out if you're as conscious about your buttons as mine hah.

I use Nova too. When I go into gestures and click under double tab... What action or app do I set it to to shut off the screen, I don't see a specific option to shut off the screen.

I found another great option on another forum. Install a free app from the play store called "Screen Off and Lock" and then set Nova Luncher "double tap" action to open this app which will shut your screen off and lock it.

yup you answered your own question haha. I use the same setup too, nova double tap.

alternatively you can set search to lock, since it's a more universal button (drag home upwards to the search icon)

Now that there's an easy way to root for LB I started using gravity box with double tap to sleep on the notification bar. It's weird though, to not have to use the power button anymore.

Physical buttons are so 2013
I use the exact same method just with Apex. Works like a charm. Although the doubletap on notification bar doesn't work, I think there is some conflict because it worked when I only had Gravity Box. When I press the notification bar it drops a couple of centimeters so I can't double tap it.

Yeah, between my last two phones I haven't had to use the power button to turn on/off screen. It's great!
