Mine (N800) doesn't come on when the touchscreen is tapped, but does
when any of the hard keys is pressed - so it can show the "Press the
following keys one after the other" message. It seems like it
shouldn't come on for the hard keys, either, because it's just as easy
for one of them to get pressed in a pocket or bag as it is for the
touchscreen. If the owner doesn't know the key combination to unlock
the device, they shouldn't lock it in the first place. That would be
one way to make the device marginally more secure, at least from
"drive-by" snoops.
