    I was wondering if there is a way to remove the droid slider all together.
    Basically is there a way to just press the power button and the phone is ready to use, with no need to slide the slider to unlock the phone. I use my phone allot during work and the constant sliding is getting a bit annoying. I have searched the marked up and down and found various sliding options but nothing that can disable it all together. please help.
    (I have never used forums before so please be patient with me lol)
    Thank you all for your help..

    Settings-> Location and security-> uncheck require pattern.

    Voila, no app needed.

    That only has to do with the "connect-the-dots" Lock pattern, NOT the slide-to-unlock feature.

    thank you for the suggestion. But that is not what i was referring too. I am trying to get rid of the slider. assuming i don't have lock pattern activated the phone still requires the user to slide from left to right to unlock the phone, this is what i don't want to do. i want to press the power button and have the phone be ready for use.
    any help is appreciated.
    thank you all

    Ah, my mistake. Skimmed through your post too quickly. There isn't a way to get rid of slide to unlock feature you are referring to, at moment.

    Perhaps it is possible with root access, though? I admittedly do not know enough to comment on the subject.

    Yes, there is a way to disable the slider. Search for screenmodewidget in the Market, or in this Forum, to find out more.

    i just tried screenmodewidget, and its a great widget only probly i have is that any button will wake the phone up. Anyone know an app that removes the lock screen but will still only allow the top button to turn the phone on? i have a feeling ill be accidentally pressing my volume and camera buttons in my pocket and killing my battery life

    Pushing the power button once is what I do. Seems to be no hassle.

    Just pulled my phone out of my pocket to find it in google sky map. Anyone find something that locks the camera and the volume buttons?

    I was just about to ask about this form those that have used the app. I hated my voyage because it always turned on and unlocked its self. So far with the Droid and a lock pattern on, I have had no such problems. Looks like I won't be getting this app :(

    I have noticed that this app works great for does who use a belt clip. I myself never put the phone in my pocket so it worked out great. also since its a widget i actually turn it on and off according to my need at that current situation. anyway if anyone finds an app or widget that would not unlock by the side keys please let us know.

    I was going to suggest this app too. The only thing I noticed that after I'm done with the screenmodewidget, I have to manually go back in and select the timeout setting back to 2 minutes (my preference). Because it will stay on all the time, which is basically what screenmodewidget is designed to do I guess...but would be nice if it reenabled my 2 minute setting when disabled.

    myLock works infinitely better than screen mode widget. Simple interface, start or stop, and it locks all the buttons except for the power button, so that's the button you must press for it to wake up. Great app.

    Hmm, I really like what this myLock app could become. Thanks for the find. Going to keep my eye on its Google Code page.

    The only problems I have with it are 1. the lock screen still shows briefly and 2. the 5-second unlock screen timeout remains until you take some action. Both will probably be fixed soon enough...

    @vinnard: It's not on the market yet, hence Berzerker's QR code. Use a barcode scanning app on your phone or follow my link above.
