Default Autolock stopped working?

Please Login to Remove!

A few weeks ago I installed 'Geek and Proud's' Autolock program. It allows the BB to turn on the key-lock after a pre-determined amount of inactivity. When working, this program is a great way to not embarrassingly call people when your BB is in your pocket.

After a few weeks of great operation...it just suddenly stopped working! I am going to try re-installing it, but until then - I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem. The link for the program is below:

I'm using it too, and keep working. Did you not working when power plug-in? because autolock will be disabled in default.

It disables/enables no problem when i plug and unplug it...or least it used to.

I did un-install and re-install after making the post this morning..and thus far it seems to be working again. Hopefully I don't have to do this every few weeks, but even if I do - the program's functionality is worth it.

If anyone is reading this and is having the same problem...just bookmark the download page:

geek and proud - BlackBerry Software
(lots of scrolling to get to d/l link)

and re-download as needed.

I just experienced this same issue on my Blackberry Curve. I believe Autolock stopped working when I used the mute button to go into stand-by mode.

It just happened again and stand-by mode didn't have anything to do with it. In addition to uninstalling and reinstalling the program, a soft reset fixes the issue.
