    I tend to keep my Auto-Lock at "1 minute" but tend to change it during the use of my Google Map App. That's about the only time that I notice my iPhone gets hot. You can vote for multiple time frames, (eg. I voted for 1 & 3 minutes, since I use both much of the time). :cool:

    Indeed. One minute is the best for music and web browsing, but I religiously lock my iPod anyway, when I'm not actually using the screen.

    (and yes, I'm thread-digging.:p)

    5 minutes... just because i mess around a lot with 3rd party apps and get tired of having to unlock it after looking up more info on my computer about them.

    i use it as more of a "oh crap, i forgot to put my iphone to sleep" type deal...

    Never

    I use Installer a lot, and don't want my phone locking in case of any lengthy installations. Firefly Media Server is a case in point.

    I did have it at 2 minutes but just changed it to never. I hate not having the controls when I'm playing the iPod. I can now just lock it whenever I want to. Worst thing that happens is the battery goes dead.

    That might be something you might want to look into...

    I do 5 minutes

    I like the ability to go back to my phone if I miss something, etc....without having to click out

    5 minutes, If I'm done I'm done and can sleep it myself, if I'm not, I dont want to keep unlocking, and if I forget it will do it for me.

    On the occasion, such as when im on a webapp like AIM that i dont want to be closed out of i will turn mine to never go off. I try not to do that too often though.
