i love having a password pattern, incase i ever leave my phone laying around my friends or family can't go through it. but i hate when i'm texting someone and i stop using my droid for 30 seconds then pick it back up to read a text and i have to do the pattern. is there any way to set a time limit, or a different way to lock your phone rather than a pattern? it's annoying entering that pattern everytime i pick up my phone.....however, it's still useful when i'm not using my phone so i don't want to get rid of it completly, i just don't like entering my pattern 20 times in an hour.

is this possible?
