Message on Locked Screen

Why does the "Message on Locked Screen" only show up for about 1 second - not long enough for anybody to read.  Is there any way to lengthen the display time?

Re: Message on Locked Screen

It is a battery saving feature. Every time you hit a button it will light up. I'm not sure who decided one second was enough but that's just the way it works.

Re: Message on Locked Screen

Thanks, but my unit doesn't work that way.  The only time the locked screen Message comes on is when I press the red power button, and then it comes on for one second if powering up, or if the screen had ben locked, for one second but it is obscured by the message which says "Screen is locked.  Press the lock button to unlock".  Pressing any other buttons does nothing.  None of this makes sense to me.  Any ideas?

Re: Message on Locked Screen

Are you locking with a password or just locking the keyboard with the lock button?

Re: Message on Locked Screen

OK. The lock screen message is designed to be visible when password locked, not keyboard locked.
