    I know magnets lock it, but there aren't any magnets around and the case is nowhere near...

    Thanks for the replies. I know about pressing K to lock and my security options are set the way I want...

    This happens when I'm actually using an app, like the browser. If I press k in the browser, it brings up the bookmarks, so I'm pretty sure that's not it.

    I think you have a BB that's from a Launch Party. Go into security options and change it to lock after 1 hour. Right now it's probably set to lock after 5 minutes. One hour is the longest it will go without locking, if it's a Launch Party phone.

    I set it to 30 minutes when I first got the phone, but yes the max is one hour...

    I have that problem too... Random locks, and it mostly happens when i'm about to read an email or go into the web browser.

    Are you connected to a BES server? There is a policy that some companies use to force the password to be entered every xx minutes regardless of activity.

    Nope, I'm on BIS.

    Traknologist: glad to hear I'm not the only one it's happening to. It used to happen before I had the auto-lock enabled too...
