    After I have used my phone which is Samsung Galaxy A8, and wait to get it locked automatically. But it does not lock, till I press the Power button. Could someone provide the solution.

    Welcome to Android Central! What have you set the screen timeout to? Does this happen only when the phone is plugged in and charging, or when unplugged as well?

    I see a feature that asks after how much duration you want your screen to be locked.I have marked it as 5 sec. Also its not related to charging, issue is at both times plugged/unplugged.

    That's a different setting than what you need. That setting specifies how long after the screen turns off before the phone locks and you have to enter your PIN or password again to unlock it.

    Go to Settings>Display>Screen Timeout to select how long the screen stays on while idle before turning off automatically.
