    Widget Locker will allow you to use the trackball switch to wake up the phone....only problem is that it's a bit inconsistent on the Incredible. The developer is aware of the problem and working on it, but I suspect it's a limitation of the unrooted dinc.

    I'd guess the switch works maybe 60% of the time with WL...so I turned it off - but I kept WL because I found it useful without that feature.

    On LockBot, click Menu button > Config > then uncheck the "Prevent Wake Up" option. That will then wake the phone up with any button press. I had undid that option for some reason. Now the trackpad wakes up my Inc again.

    I think I'll try that - I've uninstalled LockBot, though it sounds like WL has the same inconsistency. But at least WL might have an active developer.

    I just have a stock Inc, with the default sense home/launcher. Do these lock apps work better or worse with launcherpro? I've been meaning to set up launcherpro on my Inc, but just haven't gotten around to it.

    Thanks for the app tips, everyone. I am going to check out the various no lock apps mentioned.

    I just got my brand new Incredible off ebay yesterday, love it, and have been busy setting it up and tweaking it. Within one hour of activating the phone, my Froyo 2.2 update showed up from Verizon. Hubba Hubba!

    Here is a related tip ... You can bypass the lock screen with the 99 cent Battery Indicator Pro. The app is a very good one for battery monitoring, and has that plus feature of being able to disable the screen lock feature.

    I really find the placement of the on/off button on the top left of the phone a bit odd and inconvenient. Since most people are right handed and thus hold the phone in their left hand so they can use their right hand for touch screen activities, I think the on/off button on the top right is most logical, but I will adapt.

    I went back to using "No Lock". It has zero config options, but it also just works.
    You can run the app or the widget. It has two settings. On and Off. That's it. When "locking disabled", any physical button will wake the phone and bypass the lock. With "locking enabled" it is just like it normal.

    The problem(?) with the Inc is that the volume controls are super easy to press accidentally, and thus wake the phone.
