    Is there a way to disable bottom keys when in standby?

    This is hear say as I'm getting the Droid X but don't have it yet. I read that the Droid X bottom keys since physical will turn the display on even if display is off. I'm not sure if this was changed in 2.2. But I'd rather my battery not get drained or risk unlocking the phone in my pocket or pocket dialing or somthing. Is this still an issue, can it be blocked or stopped?

    I think the only thing that will wake the screen up is the lock button. Iirc

    The Home button will wake up the screen. Don't know of any way to disable that though...

    The only buttons that turn the display back on are the home button and the lock/power buttons. I dont think you should even worry about "pocket dialing" because you kinda have pushed pretty hard on the home button. And its a rocker button too so i dont think you should worry about it one bit unless you like to carry a bunch of crap in your pockets with your phone.

    There are apps to remap keys. But nothing to disable the bottom keys on the X when the phone is in standby. Crazy

    There is absolutely no need to.

    You're going to manage to pass the home key, swype the screen, access the dialer and call someone all by accident and less than a minute between each action? Not going to happen
