Pattern Lock stopped working (even though "on")
My Fascinate was acting buggy (sluggish, stalling out, etc) so I deleted some apps I wasn't using, de-activated a live screen saver, and took the battery out for a few minutes and rebooted.
The sluggish issue seems to have been fixed, but now my pattern lock (which I had set) isn't working when I bring the phone up out of standby mode. I went in turned it "off" and rebooted, and then went back in again and re-checked "require pattern" and "use visible pattern", and rebooted the phone again.
Well, it still isn't working properly when coming out of standby mode. When the phone is turned on initially or is rebooted, it does ask for the pattern to unlock it correctly. However, once the phone sits a while and goes standby and you bring it back out of it, it just goes right into my main screen without asking for the pattern (??). All settings are as they should be.
Is there a way to fix this? As an alternative, what is the best app out there that might do the same thing without slugging the phone down?
