    I don't like having to unlock the screen after 30-60 seconds of idle time. I like the screen going blank to save battery time, but it's annoying to constantly go through the pattern to unlock it. Is there an app that lets you customize those settings?

    Settings > Sound & Display > Screen Timeout (last option)

    Any time the screen times out, it will lock the phone unfortunately.

    Download the free app screebl lite from the Marketplace. It will override the screen timeout based on the orientation of your phone, so it can tell whether you are holding your phone and the screen will stay on, even if you are just looking at it.

    So does "Screen Mode Widget." It allows three (oddly named) modes.

    "Sleep Auto": Default behavior. Screen goes black.

    "Awake Stay": Screen goes black but bypasses the lock screen when the power button (or other buttons) is pressed.

    "Screen Stay": Screen does not go black.

    Works more or less predictably (at least lately.) Resets automatically to "Sleep Auto" if you turn off your phone. (At least mine does.) And optionally places an icon in the notification bar to let you know you've left your phone vulnerable in the "Awake Stay" mode.

    I want the pattern unlocked to be delayed, but I still want the phone to go dark at the current time interval. The pattern lock is handy in case i lose my phone. But odds are if I lose it, it will take more than 60 seconds it to be found. So if I could set it up to not set the pattern lock for 20-30 minutes of idle time that would be nice. It seems like a text message conversation goes at a pace timed so i have to unlock it every time a new message arrives.

    Now that I think about it, if I do lose my phone is there a way for the person finding it to get my number? Is there like a Return This Phone to This Number app?
