Default Phone not locking.

Hey everybody.

I'm currently running 2.1 on my Spica and recently have run into an issue. The phone won't lock. When I press the unlock button, it turns the screen on and I'm not prompted for a lock pattern, even though I set out up and have it required for unlocking the phone.

I'm all out of ideas.

I have the exact same problem. It happened yesterday for no reason at all. I hit the hold button and it just comes up with the last screen I was on. There is no lock anymore. Have you found a solution yet?

I broke down and did a factory reset with reinstalled the firmware. If you can't do it through the settings menu or any where else, just use the dial code which can be found here Google Android Hidden Secret Codes - Tweaking with Vishal

Back up everything first.

New developments on this! After this happened again I took a quick poke through the internet. It would appear that having a 3rd party task killer may be the cause of this issue. So, should you encounter this again, uninstall the task killer. I havn't been able to try this yet, as I just factory reset the phone.
