    Is there anyway to write an app, that will accept input from somewhere besides the lock key for when your screen goes blank. I would like to be able to make my phone wake up by pressing the screen.

    Since it's a capacitive touchscreen, I don't think it will work that way. As far as I know, if the screen is off, it will not receive any input, so you can't use the touch function to turn on the screen. There is probably a way, though, to make the camera (or physical keyboard) buttons unlock the phone, and I'm sure someone will do it relatively soon.

    There is an app called Awake Stay that does that.

    I think you mean "ScreenModeWidget".

    Thanks for the help. Yeah, Screen mode lets me set the camera, and volume keys to awake the phone which is a lot better then how it was before. I do wish there way a way to make it so i just have to tap the screen.
