I'm on a Galaxy S2X on Jelly Bean 4.1.2, and my company's security policy forces me to use PIN or Password to unlock the device.
Jellybean now allows you to disable "Lock instantly with power button" - if you press the power button, it turns off the screen without locking. And then if you press the power button again before the security timeout, the screen turns back on, and you are not required to enter your password / PIN.
I want to change the behaviour so that if you press the power button, it enables the swipe lock; so if you press the power button again before the security timeout, you are required to swipe the screen to use the phone (prevents "butt-dialing", etc.). I would still want to require the password / PIN after the security timeout.
I've seen a number of posts on this with solutions that use Tasker and Secure Settings to enable and disable the password / PIN on certain conditions - example: Slide unlock till pattern lock gets activated after interval; but this solution does not work when you have a security policy that does not allow you to disable the password / PIN.
Is there another way to achieve this?
I was thinking that if there were some way to de-couple the "slide" from the actual "lock" (since locking always requires a password / PIN on my phone). Is there a way I can invoke the Android slide screen using Tasker without locking? Or, could I invoke a 3rd party slide screen?
