    Hi Guys, anyone come across any apps that able to do that? I just have a feeling that the power button will be the first thing to break up after several months of using.

    Yes, just activate double tap to wake (in display+touch) and you're done!

    Wake up screen is good, what i mean for the thread here is another way to off the screen instead of pressing power button (not wake).

    I mean is there any apps that i just tap on it and the phone screen will off or pop up the lock screen instead of i need to press the power button.

    instead of pressing the power button just put the phone down and let the screen time out?

    So, it's not broken? I would just use it normally. Don't press it too hard. I've never had a power button go bad on any of my phones. From what I hear, Nokia has some pretty good build quality. I wouldn't worry about it, that button will probably last much past your next upgrade :)

    Power button of my Lumia 620 broke after 5-6 months. I took it to Nokia Care and they fixed it for 10$. (My phone doesn't have warranty)

    I haven't found a way. Android has many apps that do this. I use them on all my androids. Even my g2 which has tap on and tap off built in.

    if you already wakeup your device with your power button, and looking for a way to lock it without it. its the exact equivalent of turning on the device with the double tap and closing it with the power button. which is 50% usage reduction.

    now if you already wake up the device with a double tap, and want to close it without the power button. i don't think that's possible. but as said previously, you can still let your device timeout.

    Actually there is this LockScreen app, but you need a developer-unlocked phone to install it.

    Works like charm.

    I double tap to wake and i let it time out to lock if I'm not putting it in my pocket. If i am putting it in my pocket i use the power button, gently, to lock. I use the power button as little as possible.

    I'm amazed at all the concern about a button failing. I've never had any button on any of the cellular devices that I've had over the last 20 years (wow, it really has been that long). All this worry about something with such a low probability of happneing is unbelievable.

    You've never seen an iPhone with a bad power or home button?

    I've never used an iPhone. And these aren't iPhones. You don't have to hold them a certain way to make them work.

    How is the phone to differentiate between you tapping the phone to turn the screen off vs. tapping on it to select a tile/app?

    That sentence that you ended with that curvy thing with a dot under it (?) is called a question.

    I'd say it's the having to deal with people who don't even bother to pay attention to what they've written...but that's just my assumption.

    After all I get a little miffed when someone tells me they haven't done something...when the proof is literally on the same page. That type of behavior takes a certain special type of person, after all.

    I think I saw this option in some app. Possibility to sleep the device.

    Could I remember something wrong?

    I don't remember an app that allows this feature. I could be mistaken, but I don't know if regular devs have access to that functionality or not.

    "Lockscreen" shortcut is at least on shortcut toolbox app. Could be something like this I remembered seeing, not fully "sleep device"

    Btw, I personally wouldnt be worried about breaking the power button.
