    Default Locking samsung s5 power button

    Is there a way to lock the power button on the S5 when the screen is locked. I want to prevent someone from switching off the phone when they steal it to enable me to find the phone.
    Thank you

    Welcome to AC
    You won't be able to disable hardware buttons without root access. Even then, you'd have to find an app that allows you to set it for specific cases. There are other things you can do to help with theft. I recommend using Android Device Manager or Cerberus.
