Ok guys,
i tried to satisfy all your 'needs'
The program is now using registry for easier changing of its options.
Please read the first post as all options are like turn on/off.

Sebastian, i noticed that certain programs tent to minimize once today screen gets focus. I will have more look at it.

Thank you for your comments.

Added one more option as i found it wise to first get the screen dimmed then wait for a few seconds allowing the user to react. If not action is taken then the lock is set.

HOW TO: SPB Shell Now Screen
These are the settings so that when lock is applied (after dim or wake), SPB Shell Now Screen appears:

- LockAfterWake=1
If set to 1 it will lock the device after the device has waken (not soft reset).

- DelayBeforeLockMsAfterWake=250
Time in ms to wait before applying the lock from wake and running any program (no need to change).

- LockAfterDim=1
If set to 1 it will lock the device after the screen has dimmed (user inactive).

- DelayBeforeLockMs=250
Time in ms to wait before applying the lock from dim and running any program (no need to change)

- LockAfterDimSeconds=10
Time in seconds to wait before applying the lock once the screen has dimmed.

- ShowTodayAfterLock=0

-- AfterLockRunFilePath=\Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell\MenuLauncher.exe
XXX (if not left blank) it can be an executable/registed file which will be run after the lock.
-- AfterLockRunFileParm=-now
XXX (if not left blank) they are the command line arguments of the previous option.

Remember to disable the option of Spb Shell:
'Show the Now Screen when device wakes up'

I am sorry i do not know german.

However, i changed the program so no setup is needed.

What you simply need to do is:
a. Copy the file to your PDA.
b. Run it
c. If you switch off your device and then switch it on within a few seconds, it will lock your device.

you are using a very old one. Try to get the latest from the first post and repeat exactly what you did.

It should work as you mentioned.

In-Call Key Lock?
chrisstavrou, I am looking for a program which will not only lock the screen during a call, but also lock all buttons except for the power button. I have tried Windows Screen Lock, S2U2, PalmarySoft.Phone.ScreenLock.v1.8 and rev3nant's Organic Lock, but all of these (and yours) only lock the screen. During a call, you can still hit the scroll wheel, the call button, or the end button, which is what happens to me when answering a call with the phone in my holster. Any help/advice you could give would be welcome.
