    Opening the slider also turns the screen on. Otherwise, there are some apps that can change how you can turn the screen on / off.

    I've gotten in the habit of cracking my keyboard 1/2" to wake it from hibernation. Easier than pushing the top button every time... Hopefully this helps....

    Personally I'm super happy about the top button on this phone...

    My last phone was an envy touch... and the thing was constantly turning on in my pocket and draining battery.

    I'm with you on this. I would hate to just have the screen come on when touched. Pure battery killer.

    To the OP. I would suggest doing a search in the market for lock screen or something along those lines.

    Not that it's that important but you don't have to touch the top button when you have an alarm go off.
