Wake Tablet with Other Hardware Button?? (Not using power button)

2012-12-24, 20:39 PM

Hi All,

 

I have been reading a lot about the power button problem with the tpt. I am not afflicted with this disease ...yet and to prolong the power button, I am wondering if there is anyway to wake the tablet by using the hardware buttons such as the home / web / back / volume button?

 

Thanks

I swore the home button was able to do so, I'll check it out when I get home. It might be a system setting or app.

Hi

 

Thanks for the reply. Well for me currently on the TPT1, only the powerbutton wakes the ICS tablet. I wish the home button would wake it. If your TPT1 home button or any other physical button wakes the tablet please teach me how because I googled all over and couldnt get it.

 

Thanks

Hey Unit88888888!

 

Unfortunetly the TPT1 only unlocks with a press of the power button as well. I was thinking it would turn the screen on as well with the home button but it does not.. If there was a setting to wake it with a different button you would find it in settings under display.

 

 I looked at the User Guide and found this on page 17:

 

Screen lock mode

Use the screen lock mode to prevent unauthorized access to your data when the tablet is not in use.

To lock the screen, press the power button once. The screen goes blank and the tablet enters into sleep

mode in seconds.

To unlock the screen, press the power button again to bring up the locked screen. Then touch and drag the

lock icon to the right until it circles the unlock icon.

Thank you for being a part of the Lenovo Family,

Catie

After looking and double checking, yes there is no other way to unlock the TPT without pressing the power button.

 

Unless you have a android bluetooth keyboard, then you can press the lock button on it. Its the only work around.
