Rocker wakes only if unlocked
Don't know if this adds to the world's knowledge or not:
I have just gotten 4.04 OTA (forced it using the clear Google Services Framework method found elsewhere on this forum). I'm completely stock CDMA GNex Verizon.
I use a pattern lock. When the phone screen goes off by itself but is not yet locked, the volume buttons will re-awaken the screen. When I lock the screen with the power button or let it lock itself (I have a 5 min delay), the volume buttons do nothing.
I now see a setting to disable the power button from locking the screen, but given the possibility that volume buttons will unlock the screen in my pocket, I'm avoiding that setting. I always power off manually before it goes in my pocket anyhow, and that locks the unit.
