Will the screen "lock" without having to slide to unlock?

    If you just want to use this for casual browing, etc. why do I want to have press a button and slide every time? I just want to touch the screen and have it come back to life. I am wondering if they have an option to do this?

    Nice to see they will include a feature to disable the screen lock. I was kind of wondering why the screen lock was neccessary. I know its very helpful for the iphone since you put it in your pocket, but you can't put the ipad in your pocket, and thus the liklihood of accidently turning it on would be alot less. And no liklihood of accidently dialing a phone number since there is no phone.

    Yeah my thoughts! But where is the screenshot from? It looks like an iPhone? Where do I find these settings?

    I'm sure it would be needed to have a passcode activated. If you want to prevent people from snooping, if say, you left the room briefly, you would have to completely turn it off if there is no 'slide to unlock'.

    It's a utility that can only be used with jailbroken devices.
