Screen lock time on Android
« on: March 06, 2012, 09:50:26 PM »
Does anyone know where one can set the screen lock delay on Android 2.3?

I can set the display timeout so it doesn't turn off, but that drains the (already measly) battery. What I'd rather do is have the screen turn off but not lock until sometime later.

I believe you have to root the phone to get that level of control, but I may be wrong.

I think you are correct. It is a setting on my CM7 ROM.
