I found a free alternative called Proximity Autolock. Has more options, but also needs more configuration: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nuts.autolock&hl=en

Save some battery and your screen by using this app called Flip Case Control on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It uses the sensors on your device to shut down your screen when it detects your flip case/cover is closed. The developer says it has a problem with dark cases, but this doesn't seem to be a problem on my Galaxy Note 2 with the genuine Samsung Flip Cover, and a generic Sicron Fit Cover.

I've only had the chance to try this app for a couple of hours. The jury is still out to whether this app will save the screen, or negate any battery savings. Even if the net is zero, it will save your screen from unnecessary wear and it is functional because it saves you from having to manually hit the power button or home button to turn on your screen. I'll report back if it does however drain your battery more than saving it after a few days of use.
