    Display on without using top button?

    I have my Nexus One set to turn off the display and go into lock mode after 10 minutes. I would prefer 5 minutes, but that is not an option. I have owned the phone for about a month, and absolutely love it, but I have noticed that the top button (which I press to turn the display on) is no longer working as well as it use to. I have to press down on the top button fairly hard to get the display turned back on. I am guessing the wear and tear of pressing the top button dozens of times each day is slowly causing the top button to fail. Is there a way to set the Nexus One display to turn on by pressing something other than the top button on the phone? Perhaps press the volume button, or press the screen to get the display to turn on, instead of the top button?

    At the moment the Nexus is designed to turn on from the power on/off button.

    Of course it is designed to be turned on from the power on button. That goes without saying, but is there a way to turn it on without using the power-on button?

    Sorry if I wasn't clear, at the moment there is nothing other than the power button.

    Ah ha!

    I have found a couple of applications which will allow you to wake-up your Nexus One display using a button other than the power-on button:

    Lock 2.0 Skin Gallery

    Keyguard Disabler v1.20 Application for Android | Tools

    I have found that when I use the Clock application, if I turn off the phone while it is running I can quickly turn the phone back on by using the volume button.
