    Okay I've tried the search function, but can't seem to find an answer to this question, though I'm sure it has been answered thousands of times before.

    My phone is set-up to shut off the display after 2 minutes. That is all well and good, but it also locks the phone after that time.

    How do I disable that feature?

    I've loaded the "No Lock" app and it does a great job of doing away with the swipe to unlock feature, but doesn't accomplish my goal.

    I want my display to go off after two minutes, but NOT lock the phone. So basically if I press the screen it will come back to life.

    I want to be able to lock my phone by pressing the lock/power button only.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    define "locks" your phone? do you have a pin setup to access it? or are you simply referring to the screen where you have to swipe down to get to the home screen?

    Lock = Have to press the power button to get the screen to come on.

    I think I figured out my problem or issue though. Looks like the app No Lock does what I wanted, but rather than pressing the screen you have to push any of the external buttons to turn back on the screen.

    I would like to have the option for the screen to never time out when it is being charged, but can't seem to find that option anywhere.

    It seems to be all or nothing.

    This option is under Settings/Applications/Development.
