    hey guys, is it just me or is the auto-lock function not working when the "slide to unlock" screen is on?

    auto-lock is set to 1 minute.
    and it works fine when im USING the ipod touch.

    BUT

    when i accidently press the home button and the Fcking thing is on the "slide to unlock" screen...THEN IT DOESNT AUTO LOCK!!!

    meaning my effing ipod will be on the slide to unlock screen..FOREVER until the battery runs out.

    THIS PISSES THE f*** OUT OF ME.

    it happened twice the past week.

    i lock it...then put it my pocket for a few hours (or wherever)..
    then when i try to use it again..OUT OF BATTERY.
    wtf!!!

    looks like i accidently pressed the home button again

    at first i thought my ipod was f***ed up,
    but i tested it..and timed 1 minute..
    and found out the slide to unlock screen does NOT SHUT OFF if u dont do anything..

    so is it just me...or is it the same for everyone else?

    btw..i use a sock type cover thing for my ipod..so i cant SEE it..when im not using it.

    any solutions?
    please let me know..thanks.

    im thinking of getting a case..or..something..
    i dunno..im just really pissed off right now

    what do u mean restoring? why would i restore it? im just asking if everyone else is the same...as in...if its on slide to unlock...does it not autolock? or is it just mine.

    my ipod works fine....theres nothing wrong with it. im just wondering if this is NORMAL..that it does not autolock on the "slide to unlock" screen if you don't side it to unlock it....

    When I wake from sleep, it autolocks in ~10 seconds unless I slide.
    Have you tried a reboot? It could be a once off thing.

    to answer your question, no it's not normal. restore would probably fix it. that's the problem with jailbroken iPods, you just never know what will go wrong...
