Default [Q] Wake up phone with home key, I don't want recent apps

When I wake up my phone with the home key, it usually takes me the the "recent apps" screen (as if I long-pressed home), so I have to press 'back' to get rid of it. I just want it to turn the screen on.

I am running Slimkat 4.4.2 with Nova launcher. I can't find a setting on the rom or Nova to disable this.
It did the same thing when I was on Whomp rom (with Nova).
It doesn't seem to do this on the stock launcher. Is this a known Nova issue?

Anyone else have this issue, or a solution?

Thanks!
Mike

I'm using CM 11 and since it's using 4.4.2 Kit Kat so I don't know if SlimKat have the same... you may solve it if you go to your phone settings - buttons - home button and put a check there. There are other adjustments under buttons setting you can find there too.

Good luck!
