    hey.
    i have a situation with my htc one that when i plugged it to my computer i need to enter on the phone itself a pattern in order to unlock it and see it on my computer.

    after a few seconds it locks it self again and i need to unlock it again in order to continue to use it through the computer.
    i need to always touch it in order so it wont lock.

    can anyone tell me if i can change that? i want to plug in my phone and immediately to see it on my computer.

    what is your carrier?

    are you rooted?

    did you set the phone up to do this yourself?

    ever since you have the phone has this always happened?

    what is your screen timeout settings set to?

    when the phone is not connected to anything and you turn on the screen, is the phone locked? do you have to enter a code to unlock the phone normally?

    settings -> security -> screen lock -> lock phone after -> set to anything other than immediate.

    alternatively:

    settings -> display, gestures and brightness -> sleep -> never
