    Any turn off app ?

    What i need is a button on my main screen that when i press it either shuts down the tab or ask me to shut down the tab. I dont want to use hardware power button always. It feels very fragile already.
    Plz suggest if you know any such app or widget. Thank you.

    Yes the Google Play market is full of them, unfortunately I can't recall their names
    I used to use one on my Viewsonic that worked very well tap the icon and the tab went into standby

    Do a search for auto off or auto screen lock

    My brain regularly purges info, whether It's important or not, I'm sure it has nothing to do with age, right?

    I'm surprised but there doesn't seem to be a way to shut off android with a shortcut/widget without root access.

    Some android phones had a way to press button combinations in the phone app but nothing like that for us tablet folks.

    I agree with loganss-- without root, you cannot press a widget (button) to shut down your tablet.

    But with root access? There are more than you will ever need...

    TF101 B70 series, USA running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, rooted. 64gb microSDXC, keyboard dock with 32gb microSDHC in an adapter
    Dell Streak 7 running Honeycomb 3.2, rooted. 64gb SDXC. Mainly used as a music player.
    Virgin Mobile Optimus Slider, rooted -- frequently used as WiFi hotspot. 16gb microSDHC.
