Default Wake Gestures Work Sometimes

Anyone experiencing poor performance from the double-tap to wake and other wake gestures? Thanks.

I haven't been able to get voice dial to work from say one. Sliding down while the phone is sleep just turns on the screen. Sometimes voice dilaer will show up but that's every 6 or 7 tries. Sometimes the mic will flash and then disappear.

Anyone else??

The key to the others is movement. Without enough movement of the phone prior to double tap it will not wake. Don't know if that's your issue.

All of these are supposed to work when you pick it up into your hand.

Correct. I've also noticed if you move the phone while it's laying down, the gestures still work.

I was trying to post about this in a dev form for a rom I was using I had experienced it to be mostly successful. Except when I use a AOSP lock screen in my rom which I am using. (Both Viper and Insert Coin....not sure about GPE). But with AOSP Lockscreen gestures are seemingly not working at all. Am I doing something wrong or has this not been solved yet?
