    How do I disable the power button when the screen is in lock mode?

    Hi All,

    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to disable the power button when the screen is in lock mode on my Galaxy Note 2. Recently I had my phone stolen from me at work and the first thing the thief did was turn the phone off, even though it was locked, so I couldn't track it. I locked it via the network so luckily it was handed in the next day when they realised it was useless to them. However I want to avoid this happening again. My wife has a S3 and when the screen is locked on hers the power button is disabled, as it should be. Also I don't want to root my phone either. Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    John

    Welcome to the forum!

    I found this, but unfortunately it requires root - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1389946

    I will keep looking for a non root alternative....
