    Hi guys...just got my new HTC desire, and loving it.

    Already got a question (no doubt there will be more!)...how do I lock the screen?

    Also, is there a way of making profiles like on Nokia. I had one setting for ringer on, and loud. and another for when I was in work which just vibrated, no volume!

    Thanks x

    menu/settings/security/set unlock pattern/require pattern

    then, when you hit the power button you will need to put in the pattern to unlock the phone.

    but does that lock the screen as well? or do I have to wait for it to lock itself?

    If you are referring to pressing the power button; it looks the screen and requires another press of the power button and a slide down of the bar to activate the screen again. I hope this helps. :)

    As above the power button locks it. A pattern lock adds security to unlocking.

    For profiles like Nokia, try an app called ear

    Also have a look at the Setting Profiles app - you can find it in the market. Very useful for getting the device to switch profiles depending upon user selected variables e.g. location, time, battery state, docked/undocked, etc.
