    The silver button on the original Pre...
    No, this has been covered several times, and no, it cannot be done as it's controlled by a binary propietary program from Palm instead of the standard javascript files that are modified by most (if not all) patches on Preware.

    Sorry
    Just remember: If I helped you, press the thanks button!

    In other words - developers have no access to that button, so there's nothing that can be done. (I would love that feature too - but nothing yet).

    OH! Duh.

    The other issue with this would be that as soon as you put the phone in your pocket and the button was pressed, the phone would be on and doing magical things all by itself.

    How about the power button on the top corner? You don't have to slide it to wake it, you just hit that button.

    And if your power button is jammed or otherwise not working? As on both mine and my wife's Sprint Pre's. Out of warranty and not wanting to spend the $100 on Asurion for each phone with the possibility of new hardware coming out Real Soon Now(tm).

    Remove power button.
    Jamb some junk in behind it.
    Replace power button.
    Enjoy results.

    Or something like that...there is a thread around here someplace on this. I will look for it.

    Some help:
    http://forums.precentral.net/homebre...placement.html

    and

    DIY- Fixing the Problem
    - As another user noted the button is easy to take off. Get a small flathead screw driver and stick it under the battery side of the button and pry a little. Then go to the screen-side of the button on the left then right side and it pops right off. (Note: Be sure to get it just under the button. The goal is to pop the button off not pry the lid apart, so be gentle)
    - Look down in the hole where the button was and you will see a silver pad. That is the contact pad. You can test that it still works by pushing down on it with the end of a dull pencil. The pad should click when pressed and the screen should turn on. Pressing again should turn off the screen. If it doesn't then your problem is beyond the scope of this post.
    - Notice that the hole is in the shape of a "T". You need to find a rubber band that will fit the width of top part of the "T". Then cut it to match the length of the top part of the "T" and shove it in there. (Note that if the rubber band is too wide the button won't fit back on, so find one less wide.)
    - Pop the button back into place and you should be in business. The power button will then click when pressed down and spring up when released. Remember when replacing the button that the two little tabs go toward the screen and the large post goes towards the back (i.e. the Top of the "T").

    Now, if only I could fix my broken volume button (the button actually broke and the popples came out). At least there are patches to workaround that one.

    I don't think this would be an isse, as long as you still have to swipe the screen with your finger to unlock the phone after you press the silver button.

    This feature would be handy, but maybe it's obsolete since Palm is moving away from having a dedicated button in the gesture area.
