IMHO, power aside it would be great if we could ignore (or power off)
touchscreen events when on call - I remember having a Treo with an
option for that. I invariably end up dialing numbers with my cheek,
even when I'm carefully trying not to. Probably could use the aux
button to enable touchscreen again if we need it while on call (with a
hands free).
