    You know when you turn off the screen. The slide down to unlock feature, theres NO way to set a delay for this to come on ?

    What I would like would be to remove that slide down to unlock feature and just have the pattern lock on (with a delay option). But i hate having the slide down to unlock, and then unlock again with a pattern.

    No way to 1) delay the slide to unlock feature or 2)remove the slide to unlock and only have the pattern lock working?(with a delay feature if possible,say only show up after 2hours has passed)

    My windows mobile phone had this simple option built in

    No he's asking for an app (or setting) that allows you to enter the unlock pattern without needing to unlock by swipe.

    No Lock doesn't do this, I just tried.

    ^^^^^

    Neither of those program does what wanted.
    I dont want to slide down AND use lock pattern

    The no lock program turns off both the simple slide down unock, and the pattern unlock

    I simply want a program that will allow me to say set a setting of 5hours, at which when 5 hours passes, it will lock the screen, and allow me to enter with pattern lock ONLY. Basically remove the slidedown unlock totally, but add the pattern lock only after X amount of time has passed.

    Seems simple, but it cant be done?

    That's exactly what the app I posted does...:rolleyes:

    Lock Delay - Android app on AppBrain

    You can choose whatever time delay you want and what lock you want whether it be none/swipe/pattern on both the power button press and after the time delay you specify.

    Right now I have, no swipe lock at all and the pattern lock set to come on at the two hour delay mark.

    what phone do you have?

    well maybe you can help me

    Right now I am testing it to just come on after 10minues (i just want pattern lock to come on and no keyguard after 10min)

    for settings i have:

    screen off action - no keyguard
    delay time after screen off - 10 min
    delayed action - pattern lock

    I tried with screen action off to do keyguard, but it would come on everytime i cut the screen off no matter how long it was off. but dosent seem to ever come on when I choose no keyguard for that setting

    doesnt seem to work on evo android 2.1

    Switchpro widget has the options to disable the lock and just use screen lock patterns.

    EVO, settings as follows

    Lock Delay Service Status - Checked
    Service Status - Checked (grayed out)
    Lock at Boot Up -UnChecked
    Screen-Off Action - No Keygaurd
    Delay time after screen off - 2 hours (tried 10 minutes and it works the same)
    Delayed Action - Pattern Lock
    Lock Pattern - Checked

    *Edit- I will say that I see the swipe screen for about .1 seconds when waking the phone. It goes away after being there just long enough for my eye to see it and recognize what just flashed.

    Also, Have you rebooted after install/setup? I've had it for awhile now and have rebooted several times, though I don't remember any issues in the beginning.

    I couldn't get it to work with Switchpro. I was able to:
    1) Yes Screen lock and Yes Pattern lock
    2) Yes Screen lock and No Pattern lock
    3) No Screen lock and No pattern lock

    But I couldn't get: No Screen lock and Yes Pattern lock.

    Thanks for the recommendation on Lock Delay. This is perfect. (Assuming it keeps working--I tried noloack and it worked for about 24 hours and then the lock screen always came on no matter what settings I used.)

    I rebooted several times.

    I have an EVO, simply does not work.
    With that setting no lock comes on. Only time i can get it to lock is to turn screen-off action to keyguard or pattern lock
