    I am going into SETTINGS > DISPLAY > SCREEN TIMEOUT

    I click on "1 Minute". However, after only a few hours or so, the (setting) seems to be reverting right back to 15 seconds. This is annoying. I have turned-off the phone and even removed the battery for 5 minutes. But nothing changes.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Have you tried a system restore?
    Warning, this will wipe all your data so make sure you have your contacts and data set to sync with Google's servers!!!!

    Before you do something drastic like a complete wipe/restore, I would double check any apps you have installed since around the time this issue started. Maybe you have one that is affecting the setting without you realizing it. This is generally the main cause of most issues on a non-rooted stock phone.

    Actually, it started a few days after I upgraded to 2.2 and downloaded Lockbot Pro. But it didn't happen right away. It happened a few days after the download.

    I had this happen and for the longest time, I couldn't figure out what was going on. I was using Widget Locker and that app has a default setting to override the android screen timeout to 15 seconds. You can change/disable this.

    The problem occurs when, instead of unlocking the phone the traditional way, you pull down your notifications bar and load an app by clicking a notification (something you cannot do without first unlocking your phone if using the standard lockscreen).
