    Sometimes I come home in the dark and can't see and would like to be able to 2x click my Home button to enable a Flashlight app.

    You can download a Flashlight app and then use Activator to set up a command that would open the app when you double-click the home button.

    SpringFlash is the app. Then use Activator to double click home button to enable. I have it enabled with press and hold home button. Works even when the screen isn't on.

    I have a 3G and am waiting for summer to upgrade to an iPhone 5

    All the other flashlight apps using Activator require having the springboard active and then pressing whatever buttons are assigned.

    I'm trying to find a way where I can just hit the home button while the phone is in "sleep" mode for light.

    SpringFlash and Activator combo works good for me.

    Same here.
    I have it set up when I double click the power button.
    Works great.
