On PA, there are multiple settings to change notification and what not. As far as proximity sensor, it may be wise to wipe and reflash. I've installed PA on mine and don't remember having an issue with it at all.
One hint, most these apps automatically turn gesture while screen off. If you carry phone in pocket, it will turn torch on and start music without you ever touching the phone. This goes for most of the roms though!
best of luck

1) Proximity sensor not working when in a call, not THAT big of a deal but I didn't know if it had already been reported for this rom yet as I read some of the other roms were experiencing a similar issue.
2) This maybe just me not being able to find stuff but is there a way to keep the notification/status bar from going into auto-hide? Although having full screen is nice, I am so used to seeing the status bar that I would like the option to display it.
Other than those two issues, I am loving this rom, even donated to the dev just because it turned a mediocre/almost bad experience into a positive one.

Thanks for the help!
