that seems like a very special use case that's not only non standard, but very weird anyway.
There are many apps that actually benefit from root... and are free, root however is a very powerful option and should be used with care. For example, the RAZRi has the power button to wake up and to sleep the device, such button will pretty much wear off very fast, then what better than to use a program that uses the proximity sensor to wake up the device, by double tapping it... (requires root), titanium backup free version requires also root... etc etc, there are hidden, but well worth root applications out there (And to be honest rooting aphone is not that complicated)
As for the programs on the RAZRi, all of them work... except for chaos rings. Dead trigger and Six guns work wonders...
