    Great idea! I'd be willing to pay this price for this kind of innovation when I get a xoom in May especially if it would wake the xoom on opening the cover.

    Okay this appeared to work for the first hour or two -- so I shut the case and put in my backpack... next day I open it up to find it didn't shut off and the battery was dead. Now it only works via the gyro setting -- put the xoom facedown and it turns off.... the light sensing shut off does not work any longer for some reason. Quadruple checked the settings and everything's set up correct given the app's instructions... so not sure what the issue is. I'm using the Motorolla portfolio case.

    Hmmm.....

    I'd like to point out a free alternative that accomplishes the same effect, more or less...

    Check out Proximity Screen Off:

    If it was an iPad, the app would be $5.99

    That doesn't seem right. Wouldn't the screen have turned off by itself after a couple of minutes, with or without the app? Or did you somehow disable screen timeout/sleep mode altogether?

    If it was an Ipad the app would be denied on market because it would result in losing money on their new screen protectors

    I've had it for a couple of weeks and find it buggy on the Xoom and the X. Love the idea but no matter what I do can't seem to adjust the sensitivity to a point where the popular isn't coming up everytime I drive under and underpass and shutting the screen off a few seconds later. Anyone who has figured out what the settings need to be to make it less sensitive, please let me know. As for using it with the portfolio case it works surprisingly well.

    Perhaps, but perhaps it would also work right (And in this case, the same functionality is built into the iPad, of course -- please no flames: I dig my Xoom...)

    The WiFi XOOM lacks a proximity sensor doesn't it? If so, this probably only works with the 3G / 4G version.
