Hi, newb question here. I'm really liking my Incredible, but two things about it I'm not happy about:

1. Using google calendar and/or Outlook to sync to - can't I just keep the info on my phone (and still be able to send invites to wife, etc.). Why does everyone seem to sync to google - I don't want my appointments out on the internet????

2. The "sleep" mode. I don't like having to hit the power button to wake it up - I'd really prefer just to be able to touch the screen. Is there an app that does this? Only my BB, I could just touch the screen and it would bring me to the "lock screen" - I'd like the same on the Incredible.

Thanks for the help!
