    I put my phone in my cycling jersey while mountain biking and road biking. Apparently while riding, the home key gets depressed and then a variety of things happen. Last week when I finished my ride, I pulled out my phone and it had tried to unlock the phone with my code so many times, it forced a factory reset! Yesterday the phone had 13 attempts and almost did a factory reset and also turned on the flashlight, running down the battery. Is there a way to temporarily disable the home key so it won't turn the phone on or is there some other setting that can prevent this? I've tried a few different options and nothing has worked. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!!

    There are apps to remap keys - you'll have to play with the ones in the Play store until you find one that makes the Home key do what you want it to do. (Although locking the phone shoouldn't allow it to unlock with the Home key.)
