    Dont know if this was ever posted, never saw it....
    If you want to be able to wake your phone with the trackpad, go to the market and get "No Lock". Its an app to disable the slide down to unlock. Well I found out that the trackpad will now wake the phone. Just click the trackpad. No need for the top button. Also the side buttons will wake the phone. So if you keep your phone in your pocket be careful.:D

    Only thing I don't like about no lock is it stops working after awhile and you have to reset it. Especially after a reboot.

    Anyone know if lockbot is the same?

    I tried Lockbot, but had to uninstall it. Too many problems, and the settings I chose never worked. If the settings I chose actually worked, it would be a great program. I didn't want the trackpad or volume keys to wake the screen, but they always did, but with a lower brightness than my usual setting. Also, when I chose the delay lock (where I can skip the unlock process if the screen has only been off for a few seconds), the screen would never lock, no matter how long I waited. Also, the lock screen just didn't show up sometimes. Is anybody else having those problems?

    hmmm no problems here....with lockbot...it took me a while to set up but thats it! Yes, like others said it takes sometimes 2 times (pressing the joystick) to open my lockbot screen, so it works like 98% of the time but otherwise...I love it...never did the delay lock! my screen goes black after 1 min cuz thats how I have it set!>press the joystick/pad ones or twice> slide the lockbot screen and I am on my home screen thats it!

    Both No Lock and Lockbot have been posted many, many times. Unfortunately, both are somewhat buggy and aren't 100% efficient. Also, many of us just want an app that will ONLY allow us to wake our phones with the trackpad, minus all the extras (which come with those two apps aforementioned.

    yes unfortunately no lock barely ever works correctly for me, the volume keys will almost always wake the phone but the trackpad which is the one i want to work, hardly ever works. any devs, please make an app for this that works good :)

    No lock wasn't very good, when i sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't, id have to hold my joystick down for like 8 seconds for it to register.! useless.

    From what I've seen, there has not been a 100% reliable app that ONLY wakes the phone up via trackpad. So even a search won't work for that.
