I hate having to reach all the way up to the top of my phone to take it out of sleep mode then all the way to the bottom to slide to unlock . lazyness on my part most dkefinitely . Any ideas? is this possible ?

    Sure, by rooting with the Skyraider rom. LOL

    Sorry, don't know of a way to do it without rooting.

    No lock does allows you to use the optical joystick..power button.. And the volume controls to wake up the phone

    I use No Lock on the DX, but with the Inc I find that it wakes up a little too easily.
    So I now use Lock Bot. It does the exact same thing, except the lock screen is not bypassed (though you can delay the lockscreen) - so at least when I wake the phone up when it is in my pocket, it is still locked and thus not doing any pocket dialing.

    There are also some options and configurable lockscreen themes in Lock Bot.

    I tried both of those applications and couldn't get them to wake with the optical joystick.

    I have both of those apps - and if I use either one, my Incredible wakes up with the joystick.

    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.
