Guys, im the developer of Power Switch, an app that switches off your tablet's screen when you shut the case.

The main thread can be found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1277712

Ive had reports of problems with the folio's light sensor, so would appreciate some debugging feedback.

You can use the lite version to test, it has all the features, but just wont save as much juice.

Thanks in advance. Feel free to reply here or in the main thread, i read both regularly!

I've played a bit with this app now and I can't get it to work properly.

Here are the two things I've encountered:
1. In the notification bar it says - Power Switch is active, tap here to configure. This doesn't do anything. To open the app/configuration I have to access it from a shortcut or from the app drawer.
2. The light sensor doesn't seem to work. Only response I get from the app is when it's turned up side down. Then it will switch off the screen.

I'm currently running it on FolioMod 1.4
Android 2.2
Kernel 2.6.32.9

What else can I do to help you?

1 - ill fix this, seems to be some sort of funky error
2 - thats sounds like a kernel problem, try using sensorlist app from mareket to check sensor...

Okay, well I think I know why the light sensor is giving us/you such a problem
There is no light sensor

I've seen it being listed in ads and reviews, but mine doesn't seem to have one.
I've got:
* tegra_accelerometer
* AK8975 3-axis Magnetic Field sensor
* AK8975 Orientation sensor
* tegra_tmon

No.

I think Auto brightness was available in the Folio3x ROM (Honeycomb) but if it was active and actually working I don't know.

I'll give the Honeycomb ROM another go next week and will let you know how it works.
