I cant help you with the lock screen, but as far as the screen capture goes it can be very tricky. Sometimes it works for me and other times it doesnt. You have to slightly touch the screen to do it as you swipe your hand/palm across it.

I don't use the lock screen but let me ask you this.....are you using a different launcher that may be causing you lock screen conflict?

Unfortunately lock screen widgets are only available on the "swipe to unlock" setting. IMO this is a really poor decision and something i hope is fixed with a future update as i am now torn between functionality and security.

The swipe to take a screen shot is very hit and miss, i have been able to do it twice. And to be honest, i didnt even know you could do it with buttons so that is great news for me!!

The easiest way to screen capture is to press the power button and the home button together.
