What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Start phone
2. Wait till in suspend (hear noice)
3. You need to press 3 times on menu (right button) to unlock.
3a. the first time will wake, but screen will still be black
3b. the second will fade in the screen showing locked panel
3c. this will unlock the panel

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Instead of 3 times two should work better. combining the 
3a and 3b step of the reproduce steps.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
android on freerunner version 0.1.1 (on NEO v5)

Please provide any additional information below.

For me with Michael's images on an A5 rev FR I find that about a 1 second press on
the power button seems to get it to the unlock screen fairly often (though not

I flagged this as an enhancement rather than a defect and changed the status.  It can't 
be Accepted without an Owner!

I can confirm the issue. Also, the workaround from leonard works for me...

With the Michael's image freerunner-cupcake-v20.jffs2 I only need one press.
Using a latest daily build, instead, I have to press it twice or more.

Using Cupcake 0.2.0 RC1, my mileage varies heavily. Sometimes even three button presses are not enough, I end up pressing Menu about twice a second until the screen finally unlocks.

Is there no way to ensure the button input gets processed up to the desired result rather than "fire and forget"?

Referring to my own post above, it seems like sometimes the phone will go to sleep prematurely (wake locks are either not set or ignored, or the sleep timeout is ignored).

Sometimes a few presses of Power will get me to the screensaver, but the phone immediately goes back to sleep.

In one instance, I pressed and held Power while in sleep mode; the phone went on (with screensaver) and I got the Ringer/Radio/Shutdown menu on top. The phone went to sleep. I pressed Power again, it woke up, I then tapped Shutdown and as the phone said "Shutting down", the screen went black almost instantly (I'm not sure if that was already the shutdown, which is pleasantly fast, or another sleep).

So my idea of a path to go would be:
- Make sure the phone stays awake for the preset number of seconds after being woken up
- Combine "wake up" and "turn on screen" into one step. Afaik this is how other phones do it as well (anyway, what's the point of waking the phone manually but keeping the screen off... can't think of anything where you'd need that behavior)

correction to the above: the behavior is
- press Power to get screensaver
- press and hold Power again to get menu
- choose "Shut down". The confirmation dialog will appear and the phone goes back to sleep IMMEDIATELY before you can tap OK or Cancel.
- press Power again, the screen will light up again and you can press OK to shut down the phone.
