    It just came to my mind that another gesture can be added to this great device, z10... swipe down to switch off the screen, the same as swipe up from the bottom but the opposite....
    I know some of you will say that it will interfere with the same swipe when you want to switch between personal and work home screen... but this one should be different as we are not always connected to that work network... right??? I would like to suggest this and this is the best place, I think... so what do you think about the whole idea???

    You may not always be connected to the work network, but you will always have the work partition, or if you aren't on BES the quick setting menu, or the application menu.

    You know swiping down reveals app settings, right?

    I would like a gesture for this also but not swiping down from the top. Unless they make it a three finger swipe or something.

    I did NOT say swipe from top to down.... I said a swipe which obviously will be from the middle of the screen to the bottom... I said the same as switching from personal to work home screen...

    When you have balance that gesture enables switch between personal and work.

    I like to put my Z to sleep before I put it back in my pocket or holster and have thought many times the same thing. Love the swipe up gesture to wake up, hate having to wrestle around to the top to press the button. A gesture to sleep would be great.

    Well instead of swiping from the top how about maybe tapping the battery icon twice kind of like swiping the battery on sdk's but instead just tapping it

    Wrestle around? It's a must have!?

    I'm all in for extra options, but really? Pressing the damn button is one of the easiest tasks you'll ever face..

    There is such gesture, but works only when your screen has been off already. When you swipe up half way, for seeing the clock or your lock screen messages, then if you swipe down "quickly", your screen turns off.

    I would love this feature on my Z10. I know, I know... it's just a button. But I'm the kind of guy that tries to keep my phone in pristine condition. Have heard so many reports of buttons on other types of phone failing (iPhuck... cough cough...) that I am wary of pressing the button on the Z10 if I don't need to. Maybe it's a 'WANT' feature and not a 'NEED' feature, but it would be nice to have this integrated...

    I know... I was just referring...

    The whole idea is about to add another gesture... I don't want to press the button as simple as this lol.... because this phone is a gesture based one...

    IMHO, it interferes with scrolling a screen in a browser or the currently running appa.

    When you are on lock screen, swipe up a bit but not release your finger, then go down off the bezel, device turns off. This works when you have "swipe to wake" and the screen is off as well.

    I know this... as you said, the screen should be off in order to do this.... so it is useless... we need that in normal use....

    I wouldn't worry too much about that. I have had many phones over the years (feature, BlackBerry, Android) and never had a button fail on me. Not only that, you already use the button half as much as normal because you're not using it to turn on the screen.

    Buttons have been designed to be clicked a LOT. And by a lot, I mean in the millions. Many keyboards have an expected click count of 50 million (per key). If you're clicking the same button on your phone for 2 years, that's almost a click per second for the entire two years. Don't worry about it.

    Yup. I'm with you on that one. There are other things that require more interactions that could be made simpler using a gesture, but turning off the screen isn't one of them.

    Locking the screen on the other hand might be made easier with gesture.

    I suggested a solution to this before, allow the middle volume rocker to act the same way as the top power button. 1 click to show lock screen, 1 click to turn off the screen.

    Such a simple solution and doesn't get in the way of anything. The only thing it would have to override is the "play /pause" for music controls.

    It's very easy to click the side button, and on the z30 it's actually extremely annoying to reach for the top every time!
