Re: Disable the home button from turning the screen on?
If you are rooted there is.
1. Mount as R/W and open /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kl.
2. Scroll to the line that says:
"key 172 HOME WAKE"
3a. Now delete the HOME so it says:
3b. Alternatively, you can change "WAKE" to "WAKE_DROPPED" if you use the stock lock screen and want your home button *NOT* to send you back to the home screen when you use it to wake. In my opinion Samsung should have defaulted it to WAKE_DROPPED in the first place. For what it's worth, WAKE_DROPPED doesn't seem to have any effect on WidgetLocker. If you use WidgetLocker, I suggest just doing step 3a instead.
4. Save it and reboot.
