Screen Timeout vs Screen Lock

It would be nice to be able to have separate settings for the screen timeout vs when the screen locks.  Currently, when the screen turns off it is automatically locked.


Are there any plans to separate these 2 functions?  


For example, I would like to be able to have the screen go off after 30 or 60 seconds and be able to bring it back just by touching it but have the screen lock after a few minutes of inactivity.  I believe this was the case on previous phones.

Re: Screen Timeout vs Screen Lock

Aside from assigning a timeout time for battery savings, I would assume that most users would want the screen to become disfunctional when dimmed (timed-out).  I'm no expert in OS development but I would guess that what you're suggesting is not a feature most users would be looking for and therefore I can't see it making to a future OS update.  Not to say that your suggestion is without merit but most users would not require such a feature, in my opinion.

Re: Screen Timeout vs Screen Lock

Rib, just touch the top edge power key to being the device out of sleep state in one touch. Without having to enter the security password.
