Galaxy S5 :: How To Enable Power Button Lock

Aug 31, 2015

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 updated to Android Version 5.0 (KitKat).

Currently when I press the Power Button, the screen goes black. But it does not lock the screen.

I have the screen lock set to 30 seconds. But even so, there are lots of times when I have put the phone in my pocket and it accidentally it the home button before the 30 seconds is up and random apps get launched as my phone bounces around in my pocket.

So I would like to be able to press the power button and immediately have the screen lock. I was able to do this on my original Galaxy Nexus. But I cannot figure out how to do this on my Samsung.

I did some google searches and I found many many posts that said "go into settings, select lock screen, scroll to the very bottom and click the option to enable lock on power button."

The problem is, when I go into the Lock Screen settings and scroll down to the very bottom, I don't see any such option. So, how to enable the Power Button to immediately lock my phone?

Lumia 1520 :: Power Button Won't Lock Phone

Dec 19, 2014

Just started happening today. I go to lock my phone and it does nothing. Still powers off if I hold it down, but won't lock screen.

Also all of my quick toggles disappeared from my notification center. Just left blank grey spaces. Tried setting them up again, but no go, still blank spaces. Restarted phone and that didn't work. Hard reset is completely out of the question.

AT&T 1520 with dev preview, cyan.

Just as soon as this posted the toggles were back. Not sure what happened there.

Galaxy S5 :: Power Button Lock Doesn't Trigger Fingerprint Scanner

Apr 8, 2015

I've recently had my phone reset to factory settings. I've gone through and installed all my apps etc back on to it and updated the software to the current build (all stock, and not rooted).

I have had 2 issues with it, the first being not being notified of emails from the gmail app - sync was ticked, as were the relevant labels...still didn't get any notifications through. I read somewhere that if downloaded the gear app (for smart watches) it would resolve it - it has seemed to, even uninstalled the app and I'm still receiving notifications.

The 2nd issue is around the fingerprint lock. If i leave my phone to time out, the fingerprint scanner lock works as it should do. If I lock the phone with the power button, it bypasses the fingerprint scanner and only locks it with a swipe.

Before updating / factory reset it worked as it should do.

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Not Waking After Pressing Power / Lock Button

Nov 4, 2015

I have problem with waking the phone with power/lock button. Every few hours (for my usage once a day) the phone doesn't wake after locking. I have to press and hold power/lock button for a few seconds to manualy restart it. I know that N5 has notorious problems with power/lock button but as far as I know its problem with phone not going to sleep. I don't have problem with that.

I noticed this after an update to M. I am on XtraSmooth 29.10 build with RacerKernel 28.10. DT2W dissabled. Also i have the usual problem of turning screen on after calls. For me the phone sometimes doesn't turn on until the other person ends the call. Do I need to replace the power/lock button?

Xperia X8 :: Screen Doesn't Lock When Press Power Off Button

Sep 1, 2012

I'm currently facing this problem and it's really annoying. I never update my phone or whatever because it will slow it down.

My phone went out of battery and it turned off. So i plug the charger in and waited for it to restart. After restarting it, I realize there are several settings that ran away IE: My ringtone preferences and keyboard preferences. So far, I've already readjust it, But ever since the phone restarted like that, I can no longer lock my screen, not even if it times out itself after 15 seconds. and when i press and hold the power off button, instead of showing the menu for options like "Silent phone"/Flight mode"/"Shut down" it only shows power off. What can i do to get the original settings back ?

Apr 5, 2012

My iphone 4 is fairly new, I have been using it for about 2 months. It has been perfectly fine besides a bit kinks here and there, the usual things. But today my lock/power button randomly stopped working for me. My fone wont lock at all. I did shut it off by holding the home button and the lock button, but then I couldn't turn it back on, with the reason being my lock/power button will not work. It is not jammed nor loose.

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Wear / Tear On Power / Lock Button

Jan 7, 2010

If my curve 8900 is any indication, the dedicated buttons at the top wear out and start getting unresponsive pretty quick. I'm afraid if the lock button on the Storm2 wears out, I won't be able to unlock it (with the curve I could use the keyboard * + green call button to unlock).Is there an application or similar that allows me to unlock the screen by an alternative method?

Xperia Z5 :: Screen Coming Back On After Pressing Power Button To Lock

Jul 3, 2010

This morning the screen of my Z5 Compact starting coming back on after I press the Power Button to turn it off. It seems to be triggered by movement: If I'm holding the phone after pressing the PB, the screen comes back on immediately when my hand moves. If I place the phone flat on a table and press the PB, without additional movement, the screen stays off.
The screen stays off if allowed to Sleep past the set duration.
The past couple of days I've also been getting notifications that certain Apps are preventing Stamina mode from operating. This morning it was Facebook. Yesterday, it was another one I can't remember. Can these issues be related?

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Alarm Does Not Ring When Power Button / Screen Lock Enabled

Apr 26, 2010

I use the alarm clock function on my BB 9550 and have been noticing the alarm does not ring if the screen is locked (i.e., using the power button function on the top of the device). Specifically, there is still an alarm notification on the screen (to dismiss or snooze), but there is no sound. That's a problem. Seems to work fine if the screen is unlocked.

This just became a problem with the upgrade to O/S version Before that I noticed that the alarm would only be a low hum if the screen was locked, but now there is nothing at all!

Huawei Nexus 6P :: Guest Mode Button On Lock Screen

Jan 18, 2016

I've been looking for an app or xposed module but no luck. I've been out the Android game for awhile with the iPhone 6 but now I'm back. On the iPhone there is a tweak to allow you to have a guest mode button on the lock screen.

I find it to be more convenient when someone picks up my phone. They can enter guest mode without the back and forth handling.
