Looking for a more convenient way to turn off the phone screen but not to lock it until the timeout expires (currently 10 minutes). This helps me avoid constant unlocking if I'm using the phone frequently.
Below are two convenient tools that assist to achieve the goal:
Screen Off Utils (link) - allows turning the screen off but doesn't force the lock;
Proximity Screen Off Lite (link) - turns the screen off on either the light sensor or proximity sensor signals. This allows turning the screen off when the phone is placed into a pocket or placed on the desk upside down (which I normally do).
