I used to have an XDAII (the very first) where the unit could be woken up by pressing any button. There was a setting in the control panel that allowed you to set it to only recongnize the power button or have the other buttons wake it up. Naturally I set it to the power button, but after a while, that button got worn down and stopped "working" so I naturally set it to recognize any other button.

This experience has taught me the hard way, that its a good choice to have (or maybe even a necessity in some cases) that other buttons to wake the unit up in case of situations like this.

I've just bought an Atom life and unfortunately it ONLY recognizes the power button to wake the unit up. Is there any hack or software out there that could enable the other buttons (or better yet, allow selection of which buttons can turn the unit on)?

I'd like to use the large middle button on the front if possible, since that button seems more "sturdy" than the power button. I may be able to save that poor power button from years of wear and tear.

I have just the opposite problem. I use the headphones that come
with the Atom Life - the button on it not only turns on the device.. if
you bang the mouth piece on something (without hitting
the button), it turns it on too!! I'd love a solution to that

I use O2 Flame and got the same setting, no other hard key than the power button can wake up the device from sleep. Anyone knows the tricks or registry hacks, please share. Thank you very much.

Atom Life Wakeup Button

Hi guys, there doesn't seem to be an answer on here and I assume the reason is as follows - Atom Life also wakes up by pressing the "end" key... (I think this is a general hardware setup)

I was also a bit weary of the power button being worn out, so I did some experimentation and found that the end button works a treat if you have the same concern :) "end - s2u"... swweeet!

Hope this helps.

You mean when the phone is in standby mode and you press the END key, the phone will come out of standby? Beats the whole purpose of standby then :confused:

I do echo the same "problem" of not being able to change the mapping of the power button to the front button.. ( as I was able to do with my XDA II)
I 'm confused about the "end" key solution..
Anyone finding a solution ?
Thank you all

Nearest program might be MORT saver? it allows you to specify the button that put the device in to MORT stand by and therefore the same button that will awake the device. Not exactly the power button option that you talk of wanting but at least MORT also stops the device from waking up when any of the buttons around the action button are pressed.
