LockMeLite does exactly that

Just so you know for next time, don't create new threads in the Upgrades forum unless you are posting a ROM....

Re: Simple PowerOFF button to screen LOCk

'AutoLock' option in Diamond Tweak will do this. Basically locks whenever the device goes into standby. Also doesn't require an entire app to do this, just a simple tap or two in Diamond Tweak.

DiamondTweak
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=409540

otherwise, if you don't want to install DiamondTweak, the reg change you need to make is 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\BackLight\AutoDevic eLockEnable' change from 0 to 1. This will also lock your device if say the backlight goes out for another reason e.g. timeout

does this work on 6.5? there is no AutoDeviceLockEnable entry in my registry, I created one, rebooting now.

Re: Simple PowerOFF button to screen LOCk

I give another vote for PocketShield, It's the one I find easiest to use because it auto unlocks when it detects light. If you don't want it to too there you can disable that to only unlock by sliding.

Re: Simple PowerOFF button to screen LOCk

another vote for pocket shield ,but it doesn't use the windows default lock in 6.5 or 6.1.
I like the lock it uses ,it works really well for me.
