    How to immediately lock screen

    Currently I have my screen lock timeout set to 1 minute (I find anything less annoying while using the phone) after which the screen locks (to unlock I press the home key and flick away the wallpaper lock screen). How can I IMMEDIATELY lock my screen when I am finished using my phone so I can put it in my pocket. Currently I am waiting around for a minute as I dont want to accidently hit keys in my pocket, and I dont want to use the Power/Lock button as this turns the phone off totally. Thanks

    To answer my own question! Just realised that by just quickly pressing the Lock/Power button (do not Hold) the screen locks immediately. Otherwise holding the button for longer powers it off.

    Yep, that's pretty much standard operating procedure on all Android devices. Glad to hear you figured it out. Sorry nobody got back to, we're usually much quicker with replies. Welcome to the forum btw! :D
