This is a peer-to-peer forum, the only developers likely to read your post are ones like me, app developers not associated with BlackBerry.


Is it really that much of an inconvenience to hold down the power button for a second and then select lock?

If you've been helped click on Like Button, if you've been saved buy the app. Smiley Happy

If it that inconvenient, you can get a third party app to do it.

Or the app "sweep" you can design your own swipe pattern to go to sleep mode, I think.
