    Default Opening the keyboard wakes and unlocks the screen

    My EVO Shift's screen is locked, so when I press the Power button to wake the screen, I have to drag down to unlock the screen. However, I've noticed that sliding open the keyboard will not only wake the screen but it will also suppress the lock screen. This is, sliding open the keyboard wakes up the screen in an unlocked state.

    This can be bad because if this happens when it is in my pocket (or in my wife's purse) it can run down the battery, or a jostle can act like a screen tap which could make a call or run an app.

    Is there any way to keep the phone asleep even if the keyboard is opened? I'd like to set the phone to wake only if I press the Power button.

    Unsure on that, however, even if you have screen timeout on for 15 seconds, won't kill it too badly...
