Thanks!

Too bad...
Using a Leather Case, and the Close "Button" is direct over the Home Button.
So everytime the Case is "Pressed" the Phone turns on. :)

ahhh i see. at least is minimal drain on the battery for lock screen to be on 10-20 sec.
but then again the battery life for xperia isn't all that great so i see your concern. guess back to playing the waiting game

Try this (you need to be rooted):

1. using root explorer or similar, go to folder /system/usr/keylayout, make sure the filesystem is mounted as R/W
2. edit file pm8058_keypad.kl
3. change the following line:
Code:
key 102   HOME            WAKE_DROPPED
into this:
Code:
key 102   HOME
4. save the file, reboot and done
