Turn on/off Android device

I want to implement some code lines that allow Android turn on/off screen like we quick turn on/off device by using Power button. Is there any way to do that?


It seems you want to lock the device not turn it off. To lock the device its a simple code. Mentioned here

It uses device Policy Manager lockNow() method

In case of a RuntimeError use the method described in this question to set permissions

Android DevicePolicyManager lockNow() problem

To switch off the device:

This is not possible but you can reboot it using PowerManager

Note this requires REBOOT permission and OS may cancel it.
