    Hi Guys. does anyone know of app available in the app store to sleep an iphone 4? The sleep button is broken and I just wanna be able to put the damn thing into sleep/stand by. It's not jailbroken either so needs to be a true app.


    Oh and it's out of warranty so Mr Apple doesn't want to fix it.

    Not seen anything like that: I think it's the sort of system service that Apple doesn't let 3rd party apps mess with. You could always set auto-lock to the shortest time possible (1min I think, sorry not got my phone to hand right now). Not quite what you asked for but maybe a usable workaround?

    Yeah thanks, I had already set it to the shortest - a minute. Still a real PITA. You wouldn't believe how much you miss the sleep button till you've lost it!
