    I like to look at my lock screen for a while sometimes. For the time or nice WP. Why does it go black after 3 seconds?

    To conserve battery , most people swipe it to unlock within that amount of time , I'm afraid your the minority here. ;)

    "Options" is a nice word.. but Apple doesn't like them.

    It shuts off after 5 seconds because the phone is locked. It's not a screensaver lol.

    I'll have to look into it... for now, you could do the obvious, snap a screenshot and view to your content.

    Your question is valid.

    Also, why would you have to worry about the battery when you're at home or work with your phone close to or plugged in? I like to have my phone on ALL the time. There must be something I can edit in iFile.

    When you've pressed the power button, it's purpose is to turn off your screen.

    What you are looking for is a kind of exhibition mode, a mode which displays simple information such as a clock, schedule or media while a device is charging. There may be an app for that.

    close but not only when charging. I want my screen on all the time unless I say so. Otherwise why have wallpaper for a lock screen?

    I see. The way Apple does it, it's like a mini-sleep mode. It turns the screen off while not in use. (You wouldn't want the screen on in your pocket.)

    But if you want the lock screen to last longer, that's a modification you'll have to make.

    There have been a number of apps for this within Cydia, a 20 second lock screen, Lockscreen Dim Delay, LockInfo 2.0, alot of these aren't around anymore, but you might find one.

    In general, I agree with you, but I can't say a I know of another OS where you are given the choice to tweak the lock screen blackout time out of the box.

    If you jailbreak you can change the time it goes away.
