    the lock screen annoys me. i just pressed the power button (which is nigh impossible to press accidentally), why do i also have to slide to unlock? i have a widget (ScreenModeWidget) that disables the lock screen essentially by just turning off the screen.

    the problem with this is that i believe (not totally sure about this) the lock screen also triggers the phone to go into a low-power suspend/sleep mode. in this mode widgets are not updated, etc. to save power. ScreenModeWidget doesn't send the phone into suspend mode as far as i can tell.

    so is there a way to get the instant-access of ScreenModeWidget with the power savings of the lock screen?
