    How to quickly lock the keyboard...

    I had been holding the "Home" key down to get the quick list, and then picking "Lock Keyboard" from that list. The faster way to lock your keys is to simply Hit "Home", and then hit the spacebar. Much faster than pulling up the quick list.

    Probably the same happens to me when we allow newbies in raids and wipe later =)

    And it doesn't really say anything=( You sure it's not some kind of an add-on you're using for tips? I would use one for sure.

    That's right, Grouchy Smurf! I thought there was on but it's been so long.
  15. I now use maniac's keylock program but even before that my 9m told me to hit the * button after hitting the home key.

    When I use "keylock", after a certain amount of time (I think I have it set to 15 minutes), the "device lock" takes over, and then the * key won't unlock it. Then I need to use my password...

    Yes, but it does it automatically. (Which I want...if the keys haven't been touched in 15 minute, device lock takes effect).

    The poster said that their phone didn't tell them to push * to unlock, so I thought maybe the device lock took over. Sorry!

    Newbies in raids? Are you a DEA agent or something?
