What about having the power button not directly make the phone go to suspend 
(if it even does) but popping up a menu ("lock", "suspend", "shutdown") 
instead, independent of the used stack/debian desktop? I think I once saw 
this on ASU, but it was the AUX button's menu then.

And for locking: I don't want the neo to turn on the screen and ask for some 
key to unlock everytime something touches it in my pocket. It would be far 
more battery-saving to just have the power button wake it from 
lock/suspend/.. whatever state it is in. IMHO.
