What's new in this version (0.4.2):
v0.4.2 - Added a fix in the configuration (when placing a widget) for newer BN 1.2 and CM7 versions of the OS. YOU NEED TO CONFIGURE THIS IF YOU ARE RUNNING NEWER SOFTWARE!
*** FOR ROOTED NOOKcolor USERS ONLY! ***
(Running Eclair (stock), Froyo (2.2), and CM7 (2.3, Gingerbread))
*** UPDATE: If sleep isn't working, be sure you configure the sleep fix when you add the widget to your home screen!
*** Thank you for your purchase! ***
The DONATE version gives you:
* Custom colors
* Custom transparency
* Custom sizes
* Three icon styles
* Reboot, power off, and sleep actions
* Optional action dialog on press
Make it look good and work however you want!
NOOKcolor Power Button (by default) is a home screen widget that (guess what) is the SAME THING as pressing your power button. So it puts your device to sleep, powers off, or reboots, without reaching for the hardware power button.
When using sleep mode, 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 to engage real sleep mode.
Seriously...it doesn't work at all if you don't have adequate root access to your device. Root access is required for any app to have real power button emulation if you are running Eclair (Android 2.1) on your NOOKcolor (stock NOOK color firmware).
Please contact the developer with any issues!

Works well, but I'd love the widget to line up with other 1x1s that don't have labels.
From xda. Useful and like the customized options. Thank you!
Do not use this app if you don't have a rooted Nook Color, and contact the dev with any issues!
Awesome, however it appears that sleep has broken with three latest nightlies of CM7.
Works great with CM7, one thing that would be nice, if button is set to power off, still have an option to confirm power off.
