    Anyone know of a way to stop the physical Home key on the Samsung Galaxy S 3 from waking the phone? I find that I accidentally hit the Home key and wake the phone when I put it in my pocket. I'd prefer to only have the Power key wake the phone. Have seen a post on how to accomplish this if the device has been rooted but I don't want to risk that since it's new and still under warranty.

    Thanks for any helpful suggestions!

    I don't know of any options or apps off the top of my head, but I don't have an S3. This problem occurs with many phones though.
