I'm talking about that period of time after the backlight turns off, but before the phone locks. Pressing the power button during that period stops the 'lock countdown' and restores the phone to normal function. The question is, is is possible to keep the touch screen active during that period of time? You know, so the touch screen could also restore the phone. p.s.: fyi There is a setting in Menu button>Lock screen settings>Lock timer that sets the period of time that the power button will restore normal operation.
