I could be wrong, but the stock text app is pretty no-frills. Doesn't look at first glance to be much room for customization. I generally switch to Go SMS Pro (which is free, despite the name) pretty quickly, because it's VERY customizable and both of your issues can be taken care of fairly easily (lots of cool themes to really change the look and wake up the phone, as well) Sorry if that is a bit of a cop-out, but I've never been happy with some of the stock customizations, so I just look elsewhere
