    Hi, on my old Samsung phone I had the backlight set to turn off after 30 seconds but this didn't lock the screen. With the Wildfire however with the backlight set to turn off after 30 seconds this also locks the screen. Is there a way to set it so the light goes off without locking the screen?
    Many thanks.

    I control screen lock/unlock using Setting Profiles Full. I think you can do so using Tasker as well.

    Anyone else got any ideas on this? I just would like the backlight to go off WITHOUT it also locking the screen.

    I've just got a new Galaxy S2, and with my corporate imposed "complex" password this is driving me nuts. On my BlackBerry I had a quick button to lock the screen that would not lock the phone ... I assumed Android being "better" would have this too, but I'm totally stuck.

    Did you ever find a solution?
