Default Keyboard lock with password, only with A

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, it is great that you can just press A and lock the keyboard, also if I enable keyboard lock password (Options, Password) it's good that it requires the password to unlock.

But can it be done so it only requires password when I press A? Currently if I enable password, every 30 seconds of inactivity requires the password, so I usually go around having to enter the password every single time i use the Bold.

Unfortunately not. It's a security issue. So once you the keyboard is locked with a password, it doesn't make a distinction between how that password lock was enabled.

No but the timeout is adjustable unless specified and enforced by IT policy. I'm not sure why yours is at 30 seconds. My options range from 1 minute to 1 hour.
