    I have the new Samsung Captivate. When I "wake" up the phone, sometimes it asks for a Password and sometimes it only requires me to "draw" my unlock pattern. I DO NOT want to have to enter a password on "wake up". How do I turn that "feature" off and only require the unlock pattern?

    The only option I see to "turn-off" the required password is to enter a blank password for the "Factory data reset password" option. However, it does not allow a "blank". Any other ideas. Thanks for the quick reply!

    Why be forced to unlock it at all? What a pain! I've been using No Lock (by BoD), free from the Market.
