Auto Keypad lock on slider close

Any way you can force the phone to lock once you close the slider?

All phones I have had, with a slider, auto lock the keypad when you close the slider thing. I can't seem to find the option anywhere on my Z8.

Anyone have any ideas?

Cheers

I haven't seen an option for this feature. On mine, when the slider is closed, the keyboard locks by default.

I know that

I wanted to know if there was a way to have it automatically lock the keypad when you close the slider.

Mine also does it automatically, as soon as the screen times out it locks. THe screen timeout is done on the screen saver setting. Ive set mine to 15 seconds.

As said above, the keypad locks when the screen times out (i.e. whrn the screensaver kicks in, or when the screen goes blank). The only way to adjust the keylock is to adjust the screen saver timeout.

I'd really like to see something like "instant-lock-on-slider-close" in the future.. I miss that feature, too..

Hallo!
I would like to ask if somebody knows how to make motorola z8 to "instant-lock-on-slider-close"?
Maby some software can do it?
Auto keylock works only if i go first to main screen.
I find it disturbing.
