Disable WM 6.5 lock slider?
 
Background: I'm forced to use a PIN via our exchange mail service, which i don't mind, but the WM 6.5 slide to unlock screen is so uninformative and i think it's pretty lame that you can't tell it what to show on there....

anyway, i prefer S2U2, but the one thing i HATE is that i have to slide to unlock twice...one for S2U2 and once again for Windows. Even though Windows doesn't lock until 1 hr., it's still quite annoying. I found a cab that enables the option to uncheck the PIN, then i can set S2U2 to have a PIN, but I do like to be able to hit the windows lock icon and immediately have it PIN locked.

So my questions are:
1. Is there a way to just disable the WM6.5 lock screen slider, but still have the PIN prompt?

or

2. Is there a way to invoke the S2U2 PIN lock screen via an icon? (I'm going to post this one on the xda forum thread for s2u2 as well)

Thanks!

geez...i searched on this for like hours before I posted here...and of course I find it right after I posted.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\LockScreen:

Enable -> change from 1 to 0

Looks like it worked. I can enable the system PIN via Windows and disable the slider lock screen. So now if i hit the lock option in WM it'll go to the PIN unlock screen, and S2U2 still works like normal without a PIN set for it.

Unfortunately changing that options makes it show the old style WM PIN screen, but oh well...

yeah, but i don't like the pin prompting every time lock it, i know you can set the delay....but i also like being able to hit the Lock option in windows when i do want to immediately lock it.

that's why i just wanted to disable the slider OR be able to create a shortcut to call the s2u2 PIN lock screen.
