    I'm a long-time PalmOS user (Centro being my last device, but have given up the habit to jump to Android. Anyway, I have a few questions about my Desire (sorry if any of these have already been asked 100s of times!):

    1 I've activated the security lock (where you join some dots to unlock it). Is there a way to delay the lock activating? If I put my phone down for >1 minute and go straight back to it, I really shouldn't need to go though security, whereas if the phone has been inactive for, say 15 minutes, then going through security makes sense. Is there a way to delay the lock?

    2 Is there a way to make the screen stay on when it is charging?

    3 Is there a way of cut and pasting from a gmail?

    4 Is there a way to make a calendar alarm sound periodically, x number of times?

    That's about it for now. Thanks for any advice...

    1. Nope. It only takes a second to unlock it but you could just remove it.

    2. You can set the screen timeout to a long time (might help with 1).

    3. Yup. Hold and then it should pop up with options for copy and paste.

    4. Don't think so.
