Footmouth Turning on screen with volume button

Anyway to make this happen? Now I'm not taking about unlocking the phone, just making the screen turn on to show the lock screen.

Oh my... I just thought I found the answer to my question.
Can anyone help me do the exact opposite? I don't want my screen to turn on, when I change the volume.
I use GOTO locker, where there is an option to disable screen on when I press the volume buttons... The same option is in my music player, playerpro.
As of today, that feature stopped working, all of a sudden, so now my screen turns on every time I change the volume.
I tried disabling/enabling the option in both playerpro and goto lockscreen, but it makes no different... I just tried uninstalling playerpro, so see if the 2 apps somehow have started having some kind of conflict, but still no difference.
Hope someone can help me.
I have a Desire with CyanogenMod 7 btw.
Thanks

When I disable the screen lock, volume will turn the screen on. When the screen lock is enabled, only the power button turns the screen on.

Maybe try a battery pull. Failing that, looks like you'll need to backup, clear cache/data.
