    I have full version of Tasker which I use to control brightness on certain apps and which I've read does a million other things. I'm pretty sure that there's also a way to auto-kill an app with Tasker so the app switches off automatically when my screen is turned off but I can't figure out how to do it. I know there are certain Task managers that are supposed to be able to do this but I tried several and none of them worked.
    The program I'd like to close when screen is off is LGCamera app -- invaluable since I shoot A LOT of HD video (its fixed-focus mode is awesome), but annoying because very often when I reawaken my phone, the camera display is corrupted. See here for a video showing issue:LGCamera app screen goes corrupt if screensaver comes on - Android Forums
    It's fixed if I close and restart the program but could be avoided if the program would just close on its own when the screen goes off.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated -- thanks in advance!!
