    I have a Samsung Infuse running Android 2.2. I'd like the screen to lock, with a PIN, but ONLY after a certain amount of idle time (e.g. 15 minutes). In other words, I want to be able to turn the display on and off with a few minutes in between without the phone locking at all, but if I leave the display off for 15 minutes and try to turn it back on, it will require a PIN to do so.

    Is there an app for that???

    yes there are apps for that, use the search function of the forum and you will find many threads with many recommendations.

    eg; look at willim stoker's apps.

    Password Delay by Willem Stoker is working great, BUT it didn't completely meet my needs. Now, every time I wake up my phone, I still have to unlock it. I don't need a password every time, but it's still a hassle to have to unlock the phone EVERY time. So now I'm looking for one of the following that will work alongside Password Delay OR accomplish the same thing as Password Delay but also:

    1. Stop the phone from locking entirely until a certain amount of time has passed (and then lock AND require a PIN)

    2. Enable screen unlock by pressing a single button on screen, rather than sliding all the way across (it's really annoying on the huge Infuse)

    #1 is obviously preferable. Please help!

    How do you like Delayed Lock? I read somewhere that it was poorly coded and did not work too well.

    I'm running it on my optimus one and having some problems with it. It seems to do whatever it wants. I am going to try and play with the settings some more.

    I am trying to use the wi-fi plugin but it is acting up.

    Anyone else have it working well for them?
