The power button on my Nexus One doesnt work smoothly any more, sometimes taking nearly half a dozen attempts before the unlock screen appears on the phone. I was wondering is there is any other way to invoke the unlock screen on my phone, apart from pressing the power button. I have Gingerbread 2.3.4 on my phone.

@yeradis, I can confirm that AnyUnlock and other similar apps do work on the Nexus One. Go ahead and post that as an answer. –  Chahk May 25 '11 at 17:19
    
@Yeradis thanks a million! Problem solved, AnyUnlock works wonderfully on my Nexus One. Incidentally, also discovered Intelligent Keylock Unlocker which uses the proximity sensor to enable or disable the screen when things are close to it. Not the same thing I was looking for but again, quite nifty. market.android.com/details?id=com.splunchy.android.keyguard –  bosporus May 26 '11 at 5:48
    
yes, really nice, the problem is that that using the proximity sensor will drain your battery because will be running always, is not like calls that just use it when you get it –  yeradis May 26 '11 at 9:39
