Power Button Question
Do I really need to push the power button to "wake up" the phone, and then unlock it to use it?
I know other touch screen phones only need the screen to be touched to "wake up" and then unlock.
I am already slightly annoyed with having to push the power button so many times.
Or is there another way I haven't found yet?

Moto droid was the same way, power, then slide to unlock. I like it.
I do sometimes bump the power button while in my pocket, but with the android slide unlock i know it wont pocket dial.
My old windows mobile phone would pocket dial all the time, and I'd pull it out and it would be dead because it was on all day in my pocket.

As said you can use no lock. You have to hit either the power button or volume rocker to turn it on. I hated having to slide the lock off. But if you pocket the phone the rocker could set it off.

No lock works good..but is there an app that still can take advantage of the slider lock. The only thing I want to eliminate is having to press the power button to wake the phone. Essentially I want to use the volume button to wake, and then slide to unlock.

It's funny that someone posted a question about the power button because today I had the same questions. My main concern is the frequent use it gets. I don't care too much about the steps needed to unlock the screen. I just think that poor button is going to wear out before I get another phone. I guess you could just not have the phone go to sleep so quickly, but then you are sacrificing battery life. That brings me to another question, isn't there a widget that allows you to set different profiles. Like say when the phone is on the charger don't turn the screen off.

There really needs to be an app that disables the slide to unlock screen, but still allow the use of the pattern lock screen. It's redundant to have to slide to unlock then enter my pattern password every single time. To unlock my girlfriend's fascinate all she has to do is hit the power button then enter her pattern password. Any ideas?
