    Default Unlock Screen Lag?

    So when I hit the power button to turn on the screen it literally takes nearly 2 seconds for my lock screen to pop up. I've had the phone since Saturday but I didn't notice the lag until yesterday...maybe it's been like that all along and I just didn't realize it. I've power cycled the phone just to be sure I didn't have a resource issue.

    So, is this normal and if not anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    I see the same thing NOW that i read this thread thanks lol No but i do see what you mean. its not that bad but shouldn't take that lng either. When your lock screen does tun on its responsive though right? when mine lights up it unlock quickly for me.

    It's the side effect of a power saving measure.

    Thank God I found this thread, I'm kind of concerned, because when I really need to do something then this babe behaves like that lol. I thought it was just my phone, I even went to a sprint store to check that out and the little devil didn't do it over there, so there was no problem. But I do see it takes like 2segs to unlock sometimes. I noticed when I'm using the music player it doesn't do it. I don't know why, I did the regular reset and the one you use your msl. Still doing it!

    It's because the phone goes into a sleep type mode when it's not being used, I would assume for battery confirmation.

    I believe it has to do with having an sd card. I have the same 2 sec lag with the card installed. No lag when I remove the card.

    I think it's most likely a power save feature. When I'm charging I don't get that lag. When it's unplugged it does take 1.5-2 seconds to turn on. If it's turned off then wait a couple seconds and turned back on no lag. Must be a power save after 5 or so seconds with the screen off.

    EDIT:
    Definitely the external SD being mounted.

    Yup, drives me a bit batty as well. I also notice a long lag on the proximity sensor. Between the time I take the phone away form my ear and the screen lights up. Both of these were almost instantaneous on my Evo.

    Received SD card a little over a week ago - 16GB Transcend class 6.
    Before putting in device I started fresh did factory reset installed card and experienced 2-3 second device wake up lag.
    I took card out many times battery pulls this that everything to make lag go away but failed so I left card out.

    Well Today I gave it another shot having positive results.
    I let device go into sleep installed card and haven't experienced any wake up lag It has EVO wake up speed now.

    What could of fixed lag issue ?
    Last week when trying to make lag go away I went into settings (Unmount SD card) before pulling card out for the last time.
    From that point I threw card across the room gave up until today lol

    So I'm thinking Unmount SD cards was the fix.

    Can others try this and report back? I've been lazy about buying a SD card because I haven't really needed one yet, but it would be nice to have a potential fix for the issue before I do.

    yeah yeah anyone having issue please try.
    If it works I will get my name mentioned in Android Central headline

    But no I think that's what fixed lag...I'm sure it wasn't from card being thrown across the room but who knows give that a try to

    I've noticed it has to do with having an SD card installed and the phone is reading the information from there.

    a friend of mine and I both have this phone and I pulled my SD card out and he left his in and without it was instant, with there was a slight delay.

    not concerned to much from my standpoint

    I noticed mine started lagging a bit since I put the 32gb microsd card. Glad to hear it's nothing major

    Unmounting the SD card seem to fix my lock screen lag problem. Thx.

    Unmounting the SD only temporary fixes the lag problem. Within 30 minutes the lag problem is back.

    Download "No Lock". Gets rid of the lock screen.

    I don't even understand what the lock screen is for. Is it to prevent **** dialing when the phone is in your pocket? Considering the only way to turn this phone on is that tiny button on the side, which requires a decent amount of pressure to do so, I can't imagine it ever turning on accidentally.

    That's what we've come to the conclusion in this thread.

    The lag (2 sec) when pushing the power button on my htc sensation dissolved by doing the following:
    go to settings - about phone - notify htc (manufacturer). by ticking this off lag was gone!
