    Default New way to turn on the playbook with OS2

    Hey All,

    I was just cleaning all of the fingerprints off the screen on my playbook and I noticed something...

    It looks like OS 2 turns on just by you tapping on the screen - no more gestures. Neat!

    I prefer the bezel-to-bezel swipe.
    A simple tap on the screen would cause too many accidental startups.

    Afraid this is not a new OS2 feature

    Negative. Still requires an intentional bezel to bezel swipe to come out of standby mode. Which is a good thing.

    You really don't want it to do that. Swiping bezel to bezel is not so difficult - tapping too easy to do it accidentally as you'e putting it in your carryall or whatever and draining your battery or doing something unintentional when you think it is off..

    It only responds to a tap whilst on charge.

    It's true, but only when connected to power or usb. Is preferred to stay that way. No accidental touched to activate screen, no battery drain.
