    Hi I am using a new Samsung III Advance which was working perfectly but now I am seeing that my screen is no longer locking after the phone stands idle. I have gone through all the settings and I cannot find any logical explanation...use visible pattern and timeout are both selected. ANY SUGGESTIONS PLS!:rolleyes:

    Have you checked any background apps that could be stopping you from locking the screen? Try using a task manager to close all apps.
    If all fails let the battery run out then reboot.

    Ive had the same issue several times, rebooting the phone indeed solves the problem.
