    I have just got my HTC desire. And i cant stand that i have to press the power button to get out of sleep mode to show the lock screen. wish i could just press menu/home or any of the buttons but the power one right at the top. I only say this as i swear my htc tattoo unlocked in this way. .. if not this could get quite annoying... So is there anyway to change this. I have tried looking through settings but i have a bad feeling you cant change it.

    There are apps on the market for this. I'm using No Lock which is free and lets you unlock the phone using any button.

    There's no standard setting to do this. You can use menu to unlock the screen once at the lock screen but only the power button will turn the screen on to get to the lock screen. This is the same on the HTC Hero too.

    I'm not aware of any 3rd party apps to do it, but you never know.

    Edit>>

    Well theres the answer to that one then ;)
