    Mine is 2 minutes, I had it to 1 but always found myself annoyed by it.

    I imagine I am probably decreasing my battery with just that extra minute time and time again that the screen stays on ..:D

    Just leave it at 2 or 3 and just manually lock it when you're thinking about it

    I keep mine set at 3 minutes, even though I probably could get away with lowering it to 1, to conserve battery life.

    I have mine set to 4 minutes because I do a lot of ebook reading so, if I'm reading in public and get distracted mid-page by something, 4 minutes is usually long enough so that I can get back to reading and get to the next page-turn before the autolock kicks in.

    I could probably get away with 2 minutes in the winter but, in the city in the summer time, I find that there is more to distract me so the higher timeout is frequently useful :).

    5 mins cuz if I'm playing a game or something of the sorts and lace it down to get abdrnk or something I don't want it to upset it by having to unlock my phone.

    Five minutes. I used to manually lock it, but this turned problematic when I browsed right before bed. I'd fall asleep and the battery would drain; I'd have no alarm clock for work. :eek:
