    Default lock screen delay?

    Hi,

    New to Android, I just received my Nexus 4 today.

    Is there a way to alter the time it takes for the lock screen to activate? It's kinda a pain to have to unlock the screen so often. Is there a way to not have it lock until a certain amount of time has passed since it was last used instead of just every time the screen goes out?

    I found the app "Delayed Lock" in the play store, but it requires a rooted phone for Android 4.0+ and I do not really want to root the phone.

    Thanks,
    Toby.

    settings-->display sleep--> this will set the time it takes to go to sleep

    settings-->security-->Automatic lock--> sets the time to lock screen after the phone goes to sleep

    I don't appear to have this one (am running Android 4.2.1), although this is exactly what I want...

    Oh, my mistake!

    I had been using the slide unlock, and no lock.

    I do have the settings-->security-->Automatic lock--> sets the time to lock screen after the phone goes to sleep option, but it's only available when I've set up a pattern unlock. I didn't test the other options (PIN, password, or face unlock) but it's probably available in those, too.

    A quicker way, on Jelly Bean. Swipe down the notifications screen. Tap "Time out".
