    One thing i envy on the iPhone is that it has a real button for 'Home' so you can wake the phone up from sleep by pressing it. Its 10000% more convenient than going up top to the lock/sleep button (especially on the droid which feels kinda awkward to get to)

    So my question is, are there any apps out there, or any settings, that will make it so i can wake up my phone by pressing either the volume rocker or the camera button or maybe something that keeps the home key awake?

    thx in advance

    Not that I am aware of. Using the power button doesnt' bother me, but when the phone is in the car dock, it's easier to just slide the screen up a little bit then hit the power button. You barely have to move it, it just a little will wake up the phone.

    Also if anyone didn't already know you can hit any button on the keyboard to turn the screen on.
