Just newly I have a pouch for my Jolla and realised, that if I have it in the pouch and take it out, sometimes the screen appears to turn on even though I did not conciously touch the screen or the button whilst I cannot exclude it... I will try to check this more conciously tomorrow. However, question is: Is there a "wake up on ambient light" function? And if not: Could it be implemented?

it should exploit 2 sensors Light et Presence but not functional at my side, is it same for you ?or maybe a bug ? L-sensor dimming if low light, graduate if high light if a understand weel for better readness.

P-sensor should not wake phone if you not touching or/and at front of phone as my knowledge except for visual notifications as opposite led/audio notifications set on System settings>Look and feel

yay, obviously the powerbutton gets pressed by the seam of my pouch when I slide it out sometimes. However, as an optional feature it would be nice to have wake up on ambient light...

Ambient light waking would probably be a battery killer. But there's a nice usage of proximity sensor, which can be used to have a glance look at the lock screen based on taking the phone just out of the pocket/opening the flip case. https://together.jolla.com/question/937/glance-screen-partially-implemented/

Oay, it does not. Checked it. Obviously the Power key gets a little stuck in the pouch... StupidMe...
