    I just got a Droid Mini - my first Droid phone. I've looked quite a bit on line but I must be missing something. Every phone I've had has had a way to instantly lock the phone so the PIN is needed to unlock it. Surely the droid must have that, but I can't figure out how to set it. I did change the sleep time to 5 minutes and set a PIN to unlock the phone.

    In settings go to security and screen lock. Should be an option for power button instantly locks.

    The only options are how to unlock the phone. No option to instantly lock.

    Also, right above it where it says "Automatically lock' you can set that to 'Immediately'

    I see it now. Either I was just missing it or it became visible after I set a PIN. Thanks.
