The screen should definitely turn on and perhaps flash or change
brightness continuously (i.e. pulse).
With regards to accidental clicks, I have a couple of ideas:
* Two taps at opposite corners or opposite edges to unlock.
* A quick left/right/left triple tap or left->right->left drag action in
the middle of the screen.
* Apple's iPhone has a "slide to unlock". A continuous left to right
action over a certain region unlocks the phone.
Since the display isn't pressure sensitive I think any of these options
would probably work. Can we have all of them? :)
