I don't mind touching the power button (or home) to wake up the X. The slide after the power button seems superfluous. Is there a setting or app that will eliminate the slide? I'd like to go from the power button back to wherever I left off.

+1 on NoLock but keep in mind that disabling it will make it easy to accidentally trigger something on device in a case or pocket. So keep in mind that this feature does have its reason for being there..

Perfect! With the hard buttons on the X, I don't think it will be a problem. I could see on devices with a light touch switch on the home screen it would be different.

I use NoLock and it works great. I don't like using the slide to unlock feature. NoLock works even after a reboot. However, as others have said, it's still very easy to inadvertently do something to your phone because it is always unlocked. I find that putting my phone into and out of my belt holster triggers the screen to come on at times. Other times I hit the volume keys in while in the holster. Same with putting the phone into a pocket.

To keep prying eyes away, I use NoLock and an app called Application Protection to set a password on individual apps I choose.

I still use screen mode widget...it does exactly that for me and gives a keep screen awake option for when I need it.

I am looking for a way to wake up the phone without using the power button. the case i bought is making pressing the power button very hard so i want to use the volumn or something else, but i sont want to lose the screenlock function.

anyone have an app for that? I know nolock will do it, but it doesnt lock the screen anymore from what i have read.
