    A few of the times that I have played a video using Video Player, I get a lock icon in the top righthand corner. At that point, the buttons do not work. Touching the screen does nothing. I have no idea how to unlock. Each time I've run into this (3 times now), I had to shut down the phone. I must be slow...anyone know how to unlock the video player?

    Yes, stock Video Player. I am doing nothing to turn on the lock. It's just happened a few times for no reason that I can tell.

    It happens when you press the power button. Same thing occurs when you press the power button while operating the camera. Press it gain to unlock. I'm kinda not liking this feature, personally.

    Ah yes, good find there. I actually love it. Sometimes I let my 6 year old watch movies on my SF but she inevitably hits a button that takes her out of the video. Not anymore! The volume rocker still works but touch the screen or any of the 4 soft keys and nothing; although the phone does give you the haptic feedback if you got that on.
    I like this feature it works for me :)
