Long Press of headphone button when phone is asleep?

Hi all,

I am trying to figure out if I can use the long press of my wired headphone button as a trigger when the phone is asleep.

When the phone is awake, a long press of that button brings up Google Assistant. When the phone is asleep, a long press does nothing. If music is playing, a quick press of the button toggles the pause of the music when the phone is both asleep and awake.

Is this possible?

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 2 hours 56 min ago

SimpleDigitalLocomotive is intended to control digital model railway locomotives and function models via the serial port (RS.422 (or RS.232 via USB)) or Ethernet port of an Apple Mac running OS X 10.3.9 / 10.4.11 / 10.5.2 / 10.6.1 / 10.7.0 /10.8.2 or newer. It can control digital model railway locomotives, function models and accessories via serial ports on a Mac.

Supported digital central units: Märklin Interface 6050 or 6051 (or compatible devices, so-called P50-syntax-compatible devices), Intellibox-1 (classic IB with serial port; or compatible devices, so-called P50X-syntax-compatible devices), Twin-Center 6802, EasyControl (tested only via serial port), the old Selectrix interface (only SX1-bus), Märklin CS1 60212 and CS1Rel., ECoS, Märklin CS2 60213, 60214, 60215 or newer, CC-Schnitte v2.0 (it is recommended to use the D2XX-driver).

Changing the behavior of the power button

I bought tasker recently and I tested simple tasks like turning on wifi at a certain time or changing the display timeout for certain apps. So far it's pretty neat.

My power button is a bit buggy lately and sometimes pressing it once will trigger two presses, so the screen will turn on/off again... I was wondering if it's possible to change the behavior of the button so that the phone ignores a second press if the first press was done X ms ago. I think this is probably possible with root tools, but I'd rather not root because for now I don't really need it for other stuff, and this isn't a huge problem anyways. Has anyone tried something similar using tasker (or something similar)?
