    Hi

    Not too sure what you mean?

    My one goes to the last screen that was on before it went off. Are you saying yours always defaults back to the home screen on unlock irrespective of where it was before?

    Same for me. (ATT, unrooted)
    It doesn't matter whether I wake with the home button or the power button, it is always right where I left off except for the notification pull down, that always goes away.

    Could it be something to do with your lock screen, perhaps a 3rd party app?

    Hold down your Home button you'll get a screen of previous open apps. Pick the one you want. Certain apps close by default and theres nothing you can do about those.

    I know about that feature. I just want to resume whatever app was on screen prior to screen sleep without having to do that

    I don't have screen lock enabled.

    My wife solved the problem for me. Stupid me thought that pressing the Home button would do the same thing as the power button because both buttons wake up the screen. Duh

    I've always been in the habit of hitting the home button because it's more convenient

    he he. So in other words, your phone was going to the home screen because you pushed that button. Thank god for wives (of which I'm one). LOL
