FYI all you rooted Nook Color users...I made a post about this over at XDA, and thought it was worth mentioning here, too. As a little side project while working on something else, I came across a way to trick the Nook Color into thinking you actually pressed the physical power button to put it to sleep, so I made a widget for it, since I don't really like the physical power button that much. Here are the details: DONATE version with transparency and custom color scheme options, reboot and poweroff options: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.otis8.nookpowerfull LITE version with no options: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.otis8.nookpower Description, from the Android market: *** FOR ROOTED NOOKcolor USERS ONLY! *** NOOKcolor Power Button is a home screen widget that (guess what) is the SAME THING as pressing your power button. So it puts your device to sleep, without reaching for the hardware power button. This is not just an app that blanks the screen, which is why it requires root. It actually emulates a real press of the power button on your device. Seriously...it doesn't work at all if you don't have adequate root access to your device. Root access is required for real power button emulation if you are running Eclair (Android 2.1) on your NOOKcolor. (Though I think it will work on Froyo/Honeycomb as well) Please contact the developer (me, the OP) with any issues!
