    Am I the only one that gets tired of digging for the power button to wake the screen then having to swipe the home screen? I guess the thing that gets the oldest is hunting for the power button? Are there any options for this?

    You can quickly slide the keyboard open then shut again. Still have to swipe to unlock after that, though.

    Install screenmodewidget. It bypasses the lock/swipe and you can use the camera and volume buttons to wake the screen.

    I read about this before I got my droid, but I hope long fingers and it is not a problem for me.
