    Anyway to make this happen? Now I'm not taking about unlocking the phone, just making the screen turn on to show the lock screen.

    Oh my... I just thought I found the answer to my question.
    Can anyone help me do the exact opposite? I don't want my screen to turn on, when I change the volume.
    I use GOTO locker, where there is an option to disable screen on when I press the volume buttons... The same option is in my music player, playerpro.
    As of today, that feature stopped working, all of a sudden, so now my screen turns on every time I change the volume.
    I tried disabling/enabling the option in both playerpro and goto lockscreen, but it makes no different... I just tried uninstalling playerpro, so see if the 2 apps somehow have started having some kind of conflict, but still no difference.
    Hope someone can help me.
    I have a Desire with CyanogenMod 7 btw.
    Thanks

    When I disable the screen lock, volume will turn the screen on. When the screen lock is enabled, only the power button turns the screen on.

    Maybe try a battery pull. Failing that, looks like you'll need to backup, clear cache/data.
