    Lock screen not activating.

    I am running Hexen ROM. When I lock the phone with the power button, the lock screen fails to activate. Just wondering if this is a me problem, or is anyone else having this problem.

    Ok. After checking myself, I find that if I lock the screen with power button or let it time out, the screen locks. If I slide the screen over the keyboard and back open the screen unlocks to the desktop.

    I think that has something to do with how Fenuxx modded the lockscreens. He made it so it *should* go straight to the pattern/number lock screen rather than having to slide and then put in pattern/code.

    Ok so an update. I set a password for the lock screen. The screen will not lock while the keyboard is open.

    I press the power button and it shuts the screen off, then when I press the button again it flashes the password screen and goes straight into what ever I was doing at the time.

    I think if I am not mistaken, maybe this is a feature so to speak. The screen does lock after it dims on its own. With the keyboard down.

    Settings -> Location & Security -> Security Lock timer. Change it to when screen is off. This setting changes the amount of time after the screen turns off before it engages the security lock you have in place. You can change it to whatever you like.

    The default setting is 2 minutes, I believe. Which is why the lock isn't engaging when you turn the screen off and then back on.

    That does fix the problem, however it necessitates entering your passcode every time you wake the phone. Any other fixes we could try? Would installing a stock lock screen over it fix it?

    thanks!

    What exactly is it that you're looking for? Either the lock screen waits 20 mins before it activates, meaning, every time you lock the phone or the phone auto sleeps, if you wake it up before that 20 minute timer has expired, it's going to skip the lockscreen. Or, you can set it to always engage the screen lock when the screen turns off, mandating that you enter your chosen unlock pattern/PIN/password every time.

    This is how it works in AOSP, stock, un-molested Android. What exactly is it you want the phone to do when you turn the screen off or the screen auto sleeps?

    Other lockscreen? Are you referring to WidgetLocker? If that's the case, there's a setting to disable the system lockscreen within WidgetLocker's settings, I believe.
