Default Is there an auto key lock on the bold?

I can't find anything in the menus? I have seen people suggesting a third party application that can be downloaded but I just wanted a normal feature where the keyboard will autolock after a set period of time. All mobile phones come with this feature>

You can hit the mute button on the top to lock key board or set a password timeout.

Actually the mute button does NOT lock the phone or the keypad, it's only a mute feature and to place the device in stand-by mode by pressing and holding the button in. You either have the choice of setting the device password or keypad lock, but you can't have both set. So if you disable the password feature, pressing the lock will lock the keypad; but if you set the password feature, it will disable the keypad lock.

There are 2 ways you can do this:
1. options > screen/keyboard > then change one of the convenience keys to lock.

2. Click the green button > menu > options> general options > dial from home screen = off. Then just press "k" to lock.
