Is there a way to set a timeout before the pattern lock comes on?

    On the iPhone and Blackberry you can set a time out so it does not prompt you to eneter the pw evertime you turn the screen on. Is this possible on Android?

    Download a program called 'Autolock' from the market, it lets you specify a timeout.

    +1 for Autolock. I use it all the time on my G1.

    +1 for Autolock. I've mine set to a 2-hour timeout. Works excellently.

    Plus, it can be used as a shortcut to locking overly curious friends. ;)

    Does Autolock delay the "slide to unlock" feature, or just the "pattern unlock."

    What I'm interested in is a program that disables the "slide to unlock" feature for, say, 30 seconds. There are dozens of times I turn the phone off then realize I forgot something, and turn it right back on again and have to re-slide to unlock.

    My guess is it does not affect the "slide to unlock" thing, since I still get to deal with the unlock screen on my (v1.5) Galaxy. :eek:
