Default Wake phone screen by volume instead of power button?

I have tried these apps to try and unlock the phone by the volume buttons.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.firezenk.wakeall&hl=en

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.destil.fixbrokenpb&feature=related_a pps#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEwOSwiY3ouZGVzdGlsLmZpeGJyb2t lbnBiIl0.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.liberty.android.anyunlock&feature=s earch_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsIm9yZy5saWJlcnR5Lm FuZHJvaWQuYW55dW5sb2NrIl0.

and another one I cant remember right now with no luck, this perforated cover makes it a little tricky to press the power button, before I put a little piece of plastic or something in between the cover and the phone to make it a little easier to press I wanted to know if there was a way to unlock it by pressing the volume buttons which is more comfortable.

Does anyone know of a way/program that will do this? Thanks.

there might be a way to remap your keys but that means that volume buttons will be power on forever.

I use Smart Screen ON PRO:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.android.smartscreenon&feature=search _result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsIml0LmFuZHJvaWQuc21hcnR zY3JlZW5vbiJd

It allows you to turn on (or off) your screen via the proximity sensor.

I ended up folding a little piece of paper and stuck it under the cover, 300% more responsive now.

my power button has not been responding right away like it used to. i have to press it 2 or 3 times now to get the screen to turn on. i'm trying out Auto Screen On from the store and i'm turning on the screen on by touching the proximity sensor twice and it seems to be working like it says. i hope the it just doesnt turn on all the time in my pocket. Has anyone tried this app?

I saw the above post and installed Auto Screen On a few days ago. So far it's working well and I'm happy with it. I keep the phone in a holster so with it set for double-tap of the proximity sensor it won't be able to turn itself on by accident.
