    When I am in the middle of using my phone, it will just dim the screen and lock ... like in the middle of me doing something.

    I tried extending the screen timeout to 10 min and it seems to do it less. Is this some sort of bug where when the screen times out, it just locks regardless of what you are doing?

    (Droid Pro, v2.2)

    I don't know why your phone is locking up but you might want to try Screebl in the marketplace. It might help. Good luck!

    Are you using an app that disables the screenlock?

    I have No Lock installed because I was trying it for another reason but I had it set to not be active/on. Let me uninstall it and report back!

    Yea, figured No Lock would be the culprit. I have it on my D2 and the app glitches once in a while. What I have found that does the trick (with No Lock) is I place the No Lock widget on a homescreen and maybe once a day simply enable it, lock my screen, then wake the screen/unlock it, and then finally go back to the widget and disable.

    No need to un-install and re-install, its a useful app........and it is free. If you are looking for another app that does the trick and doesn't glitch like that I would recommend Extended Controls.

    It appears to be working now. Whew.

    I actually don't need No Lock because it doesn't do what I want - disable the slide lock but keep the pattern lock.

    Again, thanks to all. This forum is VERY helpful.
