Hi,
tried searching this but didnt found solution. Personally, there is no use/need for lockscreen.
For example, you lock the device and then push power button -> lock screen appears. If U slide the keyboard -> no lock screen.

So, I would appreciate if someone has info how to disable lock screen -> power-button push when locked opens the display?
Thanks.

AFAIK you can only change the settings for display to get to that behavior, kind of... See for yourself if this would be sufficient:

Go to settings -> display, -> disable "lock screen automatically" and set the "backlight time out" to something convenient. If the screen simply times out, as opposed to manually switching it off to lock the device, your screen should turn on with a simple double-tap and take you directly to the desktops. Does not work when you do it manually.

A bit off topic but I think there was a way to temporarily disable the screen saver entirely but I can't remember it. I am using my phone with eCoach and I like to see my heart rate to maintain intensity over the workout but the backlight times out and it is a pain to fumble with a phone every ~120 seconds when on a bike. How do, for instance, the GPS apps keep the backlight on and screen active without timing out?

How much do you want pay for this feature? 1? 5? 10? Even more? I'm willing to learn how to do it, and I'm gathering money for one more spare N900.

Announcement: lockscreendisabler on extras-devel.

It is small program running background (=demon) without any visibility. It is listening D-Bus when powerbutton is pressed, then it asks screen to unlock itself (again with dbus).

Because dbus is slow, you can easily see your lockscreen before it is gone.

Seems to work with qtlockscreen and enhanced-lockscreen as well (but I don't know who wants tune lockscreen and then disable it).

Known issues: If power button is pressed very soon after screen is locked -> screen is unlocked AND power button menu is opened.

Hey, couldnt find the app in extras-devel even enabling all packages. Are my repos possibly wrong or is there some n00bishness that I cant get?

In tweakr-app, there was messing with the power button, just not this feature. Or maybe the stuff that it did is just totally separated from this.

Anyways, thanks for the efforts.

Edit: found the app. It would be good to have the double tap to lock the device which seems to be gone, nevertheless very good!

Can't compile it, 38870e119588f7729a4541f75797b0ed7f666e99
relocation R_ARM_THM_MOVW_ABS_NC against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/tmp/ccoeqbL8.o: could not read symbols: Bad value
Adding -fPIC to Makefile solves.
