I'm looking for a way to increase the automatic screen lock time for the Tab 2 (sch-i705). Does anyone know where I can find this setting in the system.img?

I'm happy with the display turning off automatically after a minute or so, but I want the device to lock after ~15 minutes after the display turns off.

Couldn't find anyone adjusting this setting on any ROM in my searches.

Hi, thanks for the advice. I'm not looking to change the display timeout settings - I would like to keep that short. I'm hoping to increase the lockscreen time. For example, I want the screen to go off after 1 minute, but the device to lock 15 minutes after the display goes off.

I'm assuming since this isn't a standard system setting, it might be adjustable in the ROM/system.img. Anyone know where I could find something like this?

I'm wondering if there are any apps that could simulate what I'm trying to achieve. An app that keeps the tab unlocked, but allows the screen to turn off, would be perfect (as long as it also wasn't somehow sucking up resources or something).

Anyone have any other ideas? Or, better yet, know where I can modify this setting in the ROM?

Maybe moving this thread to the general QA would be a better idea, since this setting probably is particular to Android, not to the Galaxy Tab 2.. Any mods want to do that? Thanks

No need apps. Just go to setting > security > screen lock, select NONE.
Control how long display will turn off in setting > display.
Also, your question above, increase the lockscreen time, is in the same place, screen lock setting. search automatically lock.

Hope it helps

The issue here is that I would still like the device to be locked. I just want it to take longer to lock - ie 15 minutes to lock, but only 1 minute for the screen to turn off. Anyone know if there is a way to modify this at the ROM level?
