Is this the intended behavior that you are unable to shut down the device by pressing the power button while you are on the unlocked (with double tap/ power button) lockscreen or is this a bug?!

If you press and hold the power button it will only lock the screen and not shut down the device (using 1.0.3.8).

Edit: I am not using the lockcode feature and never used it on my Jolla. :D

To my mind this behavior is plausible, since otherwise it could happen that the device shuts down when pressing power button in pocket by mistake.

I believe Alex was talking about after unlocking. I've noticed the same thing - unlock device, can't power off the device. You must first scroll down one page before being able to shutdown the device through holding down the power button.

Yes, that's my understanding of the explained behavior, too. And if the power button in pocket is pressed by mistake multiple times, the first press will wake up the device and show the lockscreen and the second press could shut down the device.

No, it would not if the device is locked. Screen turned on does not equal device being unlocked. You need to enter the lock code first. If you're not using the lock code, well, then it's a different matter.

Ah, you mean unlocking via security code? I do not use such a security code. For me showing the lockscreen does not mean the device is unlocked. After scrolling down from lockscreen to homescreen, the device is unlocked.

I believe the behavior as described in the question (without using lockcode feature) is intended and not a bug, since double tap/power button only wake up the device and do not unlock it. You have to scroll down from the lockscreen to the homescreen to unlock. To prevent shutting down the device by mistake while carrying in pocket, it should not shut down while it is locked (for both screen off and screen on showing the lockscreen).

Otherwise, if the power button in pocket is pressed by mistake multiple times, the first press will wake up the device and show the lockscreen and the second press could shut down the device.

if the device is in pocket the power butto press should do nothing as proximity sensor keeps screen turned off, at least this is my understanding reading past TJC questions

@c.la That would mean the proximity sensor is always working, even when the device is in stand by mode. I don't know whether this is a bit too much power consuming. At the moment my device wakes up when proximity sensor is covered and I press power button (1.0.3.8 running).
