    My issue is the constant use of the power button to get to the point that I can enter my pin or use the iris scanner. I went through some power buttons with my iphone and had to replace them. We need another option to get to the unlock screen.

    I would guess this is due to your setting of timeout before "requiring a pin/password" to unlock again?
    Do you have yours set for 5,10,15? I have mine on 15, and noticed this, initially, thought it was a security issue, but realized it was my timing instead.

    Try setting it to something short, like 30 seconds or 1 minute, and then see if it still unlocks, without recognizing you, or a PIN, after that time period, say 1.5 minutes or so?

    I miss double-tap too, for the record, a lot.
    I don't see the hover-on feature, this must be a 1520 or non-950 feature?

    Not sure if my other post went through here, so hopefully I'm not double-posting....
    Anyway, I thought this happening on my 950 too, but it turns out it was my timeout-to-unlock setting at 15 minutes was the culprit.
    The behavior is odd (okay, it's technically a bug, it shouldn't ask you for any sort of login if time < 15 min.), if you hit the on button before the timeout, and have "glance" enabled, it makes it look like it's required to log-in, when in reality, it's not, you can just swipe.

    To test it, try changing your "Require Sign-in" option to 1 minute, and let the phone sit for 90 seconds or so, and then see if you can just open it without either Glance or a PIN.

    Yeah, agreed, I hate having to use my power button all the time. I've installed one of the "nice lock" type apps to suspend the system, which means I don't use the power button for that (I didn't care much for the double-tap on the menu bar, I engaged it one too many times accidentally).
    I have double tap on my tablet, our kitchen PC, you name it, everything except my desktop (space-bar to resume), and now my phone, unfortunately...
    I'm starting to wonder when I consider this a pretty serious downgrade (no VVM, double-tap, dual-SIM mostly a "penalty", no way to differentiate my weather Start icons, etc), vs just a "speedbump", on the way way to Redstone, and a pile of bugfixes...

    I've been holding off on upgrading my 920 and no double tap is one of the main reasons. For the love of all things holy MS fix this!!!
