Tried to search this board for such an app but had no luck.

Is there an app that does a similar function to the power button (lock the screen etc) ? So just clicking the app icon switches off the screen and puts the phone to sleep. Want to save me pressing the power button.

+1. Would come very handy to have it. Whenever boss comes around, and I push the off button, I usually end up pushing "vol up" as well, or somehow drop the phone.

+1 for screen off ( invisible widget)
Also if you have adw launcher just go to options and select this app or any switch off app for "swype up"...just swype up your finger on the screen and it closes phone...

Don't know if that helps, but here is the AppBrain link.

Wouldn't know. But maybe you should apply some kind of market enabler if the above app can't be installed (countless instructions to be found in this forum).
