I'm annoyed by the camera button on my phone. It wakes my phone up when I press it! Is there any way to disable the wake-up feature of it?

Go to settings. Swipe to get to application and open settings for "photos + camera". There would be a checkbox saying "Press and hold camera button to wake up the phone". Unchecking it should solve your problem.

Just go to settings and swipe right, which is the app settings. You'll see the photo + camera and when you click, uncheck the wake up feature. Just that
