    Install no lock and disable locking. You can turn it on with the volume and camera buttons.

    pool_shark: i am experiencing the same problems as OP; how do you turn the phone on with the volume and camera buttons? please keep in mind, my phone is completely unable to be turned on by using the power button, so if any settings need to be changed I am unable to do so and that will not resolve the issue at hand. any help would be greatly appreciated.
