It's just really annoying to have to swipe my finger every time the screen goes off or times out. Plus this can save battery for those who have the screen set on 1 or 2 minutes.
    there is this app called keyguard disabler that does just that but apparently there is no more updates for it

    we have some serious laziness in here

    Maybe he doesn't want to sprain his finger while swipping.

    Yeah but you have to pay for it. I feel it should be an option included with the standard OS. Or possibly someone should make a free app....

    The bottom buttons work just like the screen. They are capacitive touch buttons, not physical buttons. They'd be activated in your pocket to. You're battery would be gone in a heart beat.

    if you want to be able to wake the phone by pressing the volume or camera button you should check out a widget called "screen mode widget"

    has three options
    1: default where you have to press the top button then slide
    2: awake stay.... the screen goes black like normal but all you need to do is hit any button and it comes back alive does not make you slide to unlock
    3: screen stay. keeps the screen on until you change it

    None of these programs seem to accomplish what I'm looking for (just picked up my droid a couple hours ago)

    I don't want to get rid of the swipe to unlock feature, I just want to be able to press buttons other than the awkward power button to bring up the swipe to unlock.
