My T3 stays in my pocket if I'm not at my desk and I'm not using it.
The Keylock feature inhibits, for example, unwittingly recording 20
minutes of muffled conversation and static if the VoiceMemo button is
inadvertently depressed (no jokes about Prozac, please) and the
subsequent loss of all battery power. While a friend accidentally
recorded one of his really great rants one time, I find this
experience to be quite the exception to the rule that usually
accidental recordings are just about as interesting as one of our
weekly staff meetings...
Sorry to ramble. Paul, I voted No; but if you were to allow two
different types of long-press (resulting in three different press
types altogether) as you do with the other buttons, i.e. Press,
Press-n-Hold, Press-n-Hold-n-Hold, I think that would be really useful
on T3, so that we could, for example, power down with a Press, power
down and keylock with a Press-n-Hold, and, I don't know, power down
and keylock AND System Lockout with a Press-n-Hold-n-Hold, I would
have to vote Yes.

operate when I use the device with the hard cover, i.e. most of the
time. And, even without the cover, it's not so easy for me to quickly
reach. So, I voted no because such a feature would not be of much
value to me.
