I've got Widget Locker set to wake my phone with either the power or volume buttons. I have it set to unlock with either the home button for home screen or back arrow to take it back to where I was when it went to sleep. Again, not perfect, but it beats the crap out of the stock method of waking and unlocking
You could add the voice dialer to the lock screen, eliminating the need to unlock the phone, using WL. Better yet, if there is a number, or more than one, you call frequently you can set a direct dial shortcut on Widget Locker lock screen, then all you'd have to do is wake the phone, tap the direct dial you want, phone makes the call.
