NOOKcolor Power Button is a home screen widget that (guess what) is the SAME THING as pressing your power button. So it puts your device to sleep, without reaching for the hardware power button.
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.
Seriously...it doesn't work at all if you don't have adequate root access to your device. Root access is required for real power button emulation if you are running Eclair (Android 2.1) on your NOOKcolor.
