    Default Locking Power Button with screen lock

    Greetings,

    Does anyone know if it is possible to set up my S5 to ensure that when the main screen is locked that the device cannot be powered off with the power button? ie The device can only be turned off when the device is unlocked.

    Thanks. I live in South Africa and phone theft is a regular occurance. I am trying to come up with a plan that should my device get stolen that it wont be able to be turned off and i can use find my mobile. I have already ordered online a card case which gets srewed close so wont be able to remove battery without the right tool.

    Thanks for replies.
