I was thinking about how much I hate hitting that power button every time too.
Shake to wake would prob suck over time though. Would stay awake in your pocket as you walked.
Without having a better button layout any apps for this would prob keep the phone awake
Yeah he/she is right with no lock it allows you to open your phone with out he power button..... and plus depending on how sensitive your g sensitivity is if your shaking the phone all crazy like... you may mess your phone up
I've been using Ripple Lock (free) from the app market. It has a "Honeycomb style" unlocker. It also allows you to set the apps you can launch to, (like go directly to the internet, or to the camera, or to text messages, etc).
It allows you to pull down the notification bar while the phone is still locked, and it allows you to wake the phone up with the volume button.
It also displays your carrier, the date/time, and your battery level/status. Pretty nice, imo.
THANKS!!! many many many THANKS! this is a great app together with a lock screen app.... my power button is broke.... cracked my iconia open and booted it... then installed the unlock screen app.... now i use the volume button to wake my tab....
