    Can Tasker detect the press of various buttons while it is asleep?

    What I am hoping to do is trigger a task by pressing the Camera button, even if the device is asleep.

    More specifically, I want to be able to whip out my phone, press the Camera button and take a photograph without having to turn the phone on, unlock the screen, run the camera app, and then press the button. I miss a heck of a lot of photo opportunities that way.

    I am willing to take a lot of accidental photos of the inside of my pocket in return for being able to quickly snap those spur-of-the-moment shots.
