    In case anyone reads this and goes and buys this app like I did...no it doesn't. It let's you put a delay on the pattern lock, but during that delay time the slide lock still comes up. If anything, to someone who's looking to get rid of the lock altogether this app actually makes the problem worse.

    It's a nice app, but this isn't the problem it solves.

    I would tend to agree. I would prefer the screen to just go blank after let's say 2 mintues as it sit on my desk so it conserves the battery. And then if I truly want to lock it, I can either hit a widget to lock it or the button on top.

    The extra steps of sliding the keyboard or hitting the top button, THEN doing slide to unlock should be an option that can be turned off.

    SMS Popup will display an incoming text message even if the phones screen is asleep and locked.. so that could be a solution to part of your problem.

    The Droid is missing a lot of the polishes that Windows/iPhone has. I attribute most of that to how new it is.

    It is frustrating for me, coming from an environment where the default phone OS has most of the features I've come to rely on. On the Droid, it requires a lot of addons to get it to a similar level.

    For things such as the lock feature you're looking for though, I've come to realize that all I can do is wait for some developer to work on it. I'm sure there will be a ton of new apps coming in the next months. And many of them will address some of these issues.

    The question is can we be patient enough until then.

    I noticed on another thread about this Widget called Awake Stay. It works for me. Seems to have a few glitches as it resets itself once and a while to where the lock screen comes back but just tapping the icon to put the circle with a line through it makes it so the lock screen does not come up again. Hope this helps. Oh and the app is free.

    Do you mean STAYAWAKE? I cannot find Awake Stay. I did find another one called ScreenModeWidget, Im going to test see what that is.

    Yes you are correct the app itself is ScreenModeWidget. I was looking at the desktop and used the name that it showed there instead of looking at the actual app. Sorry about that.

    ScreenModeWidget did the trick for me!! Thanks! No more pesky slider screen!!

    Now - back to figuring out how to switch the notification bar to the bottom so that I can flick it with my thumb and not "reach" across the whole screen to get to it.

    That app does this, but it's buggy. You need to remove the widget and re-add it to the desktop every half hour or so because it stops working.

    OH - OH; AND, not only will it remove that pesky slider.... It allows you to turn on the screen using the volume rocker or the camera buttons too!!! SOOOOOO much easier!

    Can't help with the notification bar location other than to suggest holding the phone upside down. As far as the problems with the slider app go I never had to uninstall and reinstall just had to tap it again to get it back to blocking the locking screen.
