The thing that i curious about tweak: Is there possible to create a tweak (maybe activator gesture by swiping the screen etc) that able to WAKE UP idevice from sleep condition, what i mean is to make lockscreen turn visible from unvisible state without pressing physical button. I am googling all the way but cannot find such tweak. if there any, i think it may make our idevice physical button last longer.

I don't believe so. Your screen will not recognize you touching it when it is asleep, hence the home button to awake.

Yes it is that i concerned, i dont have programming knowlodge so i also worry that unvisible locked screen is the condition that impossible to tweak. But i hope it otherwise. thanks

there is a tweak called FlipOver (i think) it will lock/unlock your device simply by turning it over onto the screen. It uses the proximity sensor i believe
