Hi all.
I know there's a registry hack to wake up the phone with every button, not only with the ON/OFF button but I'm not able to find the topic. I can't find the right words to search...

It is just a windows mobile setting:
Start -> Settings -> System -> Key lock -> do not lock keys (or something like that, I have a dutch phone).

Make sure you have a good locking solution, like TouchLockPro, because your phone will awake regularly when the keys are pressed.

Hi ZuinigeRijder.
First of all thank u for ur reply.
Then, unfortunately I can't find these options on my phone (in the latest three different ROMs I've tried these options are no more in the settings, one 6.1 and two 6.5 ROMs).
Some times ago I've found a post with a registry hack to obtain that result.
But now I can't find that post anymore.

Thank u very much

Sorry, I've found it!!!
And here it is for all who need it:

Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Keybd\DefaultKeyLock

set it to 0 and all the hardware keys will wake up the phone.
Thank you for all.

Actually here is the easier way. Install this control panel app, to control the key lock. Its made by HTC, and has been included on their devices for a looong time now. But I do believe certain OEM's/Carriers remove this for some unknown reason.

Thank u for this info!
This explains why I had this tool in the original ROM but I haven't found it in the next cooked ROMs I tried!

Confirmed - Key Lock Cab on HD2 Does not Work

Confirmed, loaded the Key Lock cab, reset phone.
Start>Settings>All Settings>System>Key Lock -
elected <Lock all buttons except for power button>
Reset the Phone
Phone can still be powered back on by any hardware button
Would appreciate any assistance.

What device are you using? As far as I know this should work on most if not all HTC Winmo devices.
