[Apk] Killswitch - put you device to sleep by shutting the case
Killswitch for tablets and phones
Fahrbot Mobile presents Killswitch, a utility made specifically for devices with cases.
What does Killswitch do?
The app uses a combination of sensors to control the sleep state and screen lock of any device.
At the moment, it uses the proximity sensor, light sensor and accelerometer.
Killswitch has the added advantage of removing your lockscreen via two different methods if you so wish. If you have a case, it really isnt necessary and can be annoying.
Why use Killswitch?
Killswitch will save you battery - putting your device to sleep is as intuitive as shutting your case or turning your phone face down.
And, of course, Killswitch will show all your ipad and iphone loving mates why android is just that much more awesome
After upgrading to a newer version, please go into the settings dialog and enable Killswitch again. This is not optimal, but it saves battery and cpu time by removing the necessity for a constantly running service!
In order to uninstall the app, untick "Admin privileges" in Killswitch or via the Accessibility page of your device's settings.

The Lite version is now also on the Android Market
You shouldnt be - just use spare parts or whatever and you will find that Killswitch has used almost zero resources.
I made this app for myself originally and i have it on 3 devices. None of them are having battery problems.
don't get me wrong, i'm not saying that Killswitch uses a lot of battery, i'm just saying your statement "All this will use no more power than any Android device does on default settings, as all of the pertinent sensors are already on all the time." is not really true because I know that at least 1 sensor, which is the proximity sensor, is not on all the time, even on default settings.
