I'm sure this must be an issue for others, but I can't find any discussion of it.

I find that while I'm using my tablet in my hands, I keep bumping the power button and locking the screen.

Is there a an app anyone knows of to resolve this? Or a Workaround? I figure if there was a two step lock process similar to the old unlock on Nokia phones years ago, or something else clever to make it much more difficult to bump...

And I'm very keen to avoid rooting.

Ideas?

The workaround is:

Don't hold the tablet so clumsily.

Yes, you are the only one with this problem.

Man... if that's going to be your reply - just don't reply.

It's simply the truth, sorry.

I even can't imagine how I could manage to hold the tablet in a way that I always accidentally press the power button!

I do it from time to time. Usually it's when I try to reach my thumb to something that is close to the middle of the screen. The part of the palm of my hand just below my index finger would sometimes accidentally apply just enough pressure around the power button to pass the button's pressure point (when I'm holding the tablet with two hands in landscape mode and don't want to switch to one-hand grip just to tap something near the middle)
