I know there are some apps that do this, but do any of them work with the Touchpad? I love how my Nexus 7 does a turn off/lockscreen when I close the case.

Requires hardware in the device, typically a magnetic switch in the case that actuates when a magnet in the cover comes near it. Touchpad doesn't have it. Give it up unless you want to do some serious soldering..

I used to use CaseSwitch to have my TouchPad turn the screen off whenever I closed my screen cover. Take a look.

Looks great but hasn't been updated since 2012.

It works, but it really screws up battery use. No deep sleep, just screen off.
