    Please give me the double tap the screen to turn on my phone already. I've been double tapping my screen lately in hopes that it turns on. I'm tired of having to holding my phone on one side and pressing the power button on the other.

    Yes this user is getting lazy.

    Much Appreciated

    I would be fearful of double tap in combo with the super-sensitive digitizer in my pocket. Sounds like a good way to call all of the phone numbers (at best).

    Personally I would like to have either a physical windows key (feels more "natural" when doing a screen shot) like the Ativ S, or just let me double tap solely the logo.
