Support power on via home button returns to home screen

http://androidforums.com – When my phone's lying flat on a table, it's easier to turn it on by pressing the home button rather than position my hand to squeeze the power button. When I'd switch on my Note 1, S2, and S3 this way, they'd wake up to the last used app screen, which is not necessarily a home screen. The Note 2, however, always returns to the main home screen. Is there a way to make switching on via the home button work the same as switching on via the power button? I don't use a lock screen, by the way. (General)
