    One main beef with Android is that I cannot separate the screen turnoff from the device lock (i.e., have the screen shutoff after 30 seconds but not need to enter a PIN to wake it up).

    Tasker plus the Local Password Plug-In (Locale Password Lock Plug-in - Android app on AppBrain) can help deliver this, but I can't figure out how to get it to work. Please help.

    I've created a profile for display off. The activities are to wait for 30 minutes and then activate the password.

    However, it's not working, I still need to use my PIN after just a few minutes. Can someone help me figure out how to get this working in Tasker?

    I think I have this figured out but it will take a while to test, let you know soon.

    My idea didn't work, I will keep working on it and let you know when I have a solution.

    Thanks, I'm continuing to try a few things, no dice so far. Same goes for me on reporting back.

    Sadly been able to search out the answer elsewhere, too.

    Ok, found this post, but unfortunately when I tried it I still get a PIN prompt when turning the screen off manually. It works if I let the display timeout on its own, though.

    If you change the Lockdelay from 30 to 360
    and the wait to 5 seconds

    Then as long as you leave the screen on for at least 5 seconds you shouldn't have to unlock it when you do it manually

    If that is too long just do the math
    3600 seconds divided by the minimum amount of time you want the screen on will give you what to set lockdelay to and the minimum amount of time is your wait time.
