The power button of my nexus one is broken, I cannot do reboot phone or lock screen tasks without the need of a adb shell. So I make a simple app to replace what a hardware button does.

To uninstall Powerless, please go to your device administration to deactivate it or press the remove device button. Then you can go through the normal uninstall process.

*** Known issue ***
For device running ICS or above, Powerless can't lock your screen when you have screenlock set. One workaround is to set your screenlock as "None".

    Go to settings, security, and find device administration. Turn off this apps admin rights, then uninstall immediately. Only way you can remove this.
