    Changing what the buttons do

    I want to change how the device locks when you hold the button on the left side of the phone. Is that possible? I downloaded a screen saver type program that I would like to lunch when I hold down that button.

    in your menu settings, do you have a "buttons" menu? go into that and you should be able to map most of your buttons.

    I do but it only allows me to change the camera short press and the lock short press. I want to be able to change the lock long press

    You need a program like sktools that allows you to map the long and short presses of the side keys. I believe the program "advanced config" that you can find on larsdennet's page will also remap these for you.

    If you want to do it via the registry, search for "mouse.exe" - that's the name of the program called up by the short lock key press. The rest of the entries should be nearby.
