When the screen turns off, so does the digitiser. When the amoled panel is not displaying your "screen", you cannot use touch input because there is no electrical field to "disturb" in the digitiser.
This is how a digitiser works. When the display is on, electric current is passed through the digitiser. When you touch the glass, the field is disturbed and that disturbance is registered as touch input.
Touch 2 wake drains battery. This is because in order to touch the glass to wake the device, the digitiser must constantly have the electrical current running throughout. So technically, how is it even possible that "slide2wake" uses less power? Sounds rubbish to me. Would love to read a technical explanation as to why slide 2 wake is able to register touch input without power.... or why it would use less power.
To me the only obvious advantage would be a slide is more precise than a touch so would avoid more accidental wakes however to register every slide is the same as to register every touch. Electricity must run through the digitiser at all times so it doesn't sound feasible to me that it would be more battery efficient

Don't beg for thanks. The "Thanks" feature exists so that important threads are not cluttered with pointless "thanks" posts. Receiving thanks is not an achievement, nor should it be your goal.
