I really like this program. I just wish it would not lock the device when I am on the phone. I often have to look at my calendar during a phone call and with the device locked it doesn't help. Is there anyway to NOT lock the device as long as the phone is being used?

Thanks!

I'll add 5 and 10 minutes which should be easy. Maybe at some point later I'll add a custom setting.

Hey just a suggestion while you're in there, might as well add 2 minutes -- you know someone is going to come along and ask for it. 1, 2, 5, 10 sounds like a good pattern set that should satisfy most.

0.5 release. Now has the option to not lock when on a call, and added more timeout options.

I edited the first post with the update.

This is a great little program as is Softreset. Quick question did you know these don't show up properly in the appllicaton loader..it just show a blank entry for the application name but if you click details your name appears.

That's strange. I'll take a look at it. Did you install OTA or from the application loader? Is it only when you install OTA and then use the app loader later?

@metsfan - thanks for another release, works great.

Now for a strange one, tell me what you think. The Pearl has a small UI problem, if you have it set to:

- prompt for USB Mass Storage
- have the keys locked
- plug in a USB cable

...the UI issue is that the Pearl won't give you the popup to choose YES or NO for USB Mass Storage while the keys are locked; you have to unlock them, then you get the popup question.

The request then is if AutoLock could help solve this -- is there a way (user configurable setting of course) to hook into the USB cable just-plugged-in API and unlock the keys for us? Does that make sense what I'm trying to explain?

settings: don't lock while on USB, unlock when USB plugged in

scenario: keys locked. plug in USB, keys unlock and stay unlocked. unplug and the keys relock as usual with the backlight.

whatchya think?

I don't think there's any way to force an unlock without user interaction.

I installed OTA but noticed it in the app loader when i was installing another program. since it was blank I wondered what program it was.

Once it's in locked mode, I assume it stops polling altogether and only "wakes up" after the keyboard has been unlocked? (or the display becomes active?) Is there a seperate poll for this that's... longer?

One interesting side effect of using this that might be hard to catch if you're not looking close -- when you wake up the device after the backlight+lock has occured, the screen "goes white" for a split second before the normal mainscreen UI is redrawn.

- set it to 30secs, let the backlight turn off then wait for a lock
- press the pearlball (sic) to wake up the screen, watch carefully for the white flash (only happens for a split second)

...now go ahead and Disable autolock, let it sleep again (either keypad locked or unlocked, doesn't seem to matter) and then press the pearlball to wake it up -- no white-screen-flash occurs. I'm curious why this is happening with AutoLock.
You know at first i didnt notice this phenom, but when i started payimg more attention to the screen i did notice this issue. Its no big deal though.

Yeah, I've seen it a few times now too. Weird.

I've seen that just pulling from my holster or picking up when it's dark, even before installing autolock. I saw it more in my 7100t

...you thinking it has something to do with the ambient light sensor for the autodim? I will say where I sit at home here is ambiently lit, not direct light or anything so the sensor should be tripped to make it dim. I think I remember posting the above while here.

I don't know. I just know I've seen it once in a while. Not often, though.
