    I want to change the location of my power button to the center button on the bottom of the HTC desire. Is there an app to do that? I don't want it on the volume button, just on the bottom middle round button.
    Thanks

    what specific function of the power button do you want moved? Turning off and on cannot be moved, but if you want to turn the screen on, it is possible on some custom roms.

    Widget Locker allows you to use the trackball (or other buttons) to wake up the phone (go from screen off to screen on).

    As SUroot stated though, the actual power on / power off function isn't able to be moved.
