worded,

There should be a setting for that under Tools -> Settings -> General -> Security, look for Keypad Lock and set to disable. However, I have seen some discussion of this, and evidently this cannot be disabled in some circumstances (if you are connecting to an Exchange server, for example).

Cheers,

Phone not connected to anything bar a laptop / blue tooth.

Keypad Autolock period - "disabled"
Phoen auto lock - 5 mins - I have defined this.

On a hunch I will put Keypad Autolock period - "59" mins
I can deal with that. But as far as I know last time, it did the same and auto locked anyway.
