Re: Do not lock Key when editing [Request]

Hello Sirs,

You are right, the key timer looks at activity with key. Personally, I use a long timer ( 10hours or such) on key to make sure it will remain open during my session at the computer or device. Sometimes I even remember to lock it manually once I'm done.

ps. About the editing thing, I agree, it is annoying if you forget to save and lose the changes.

I think you can go to settings and change how many minutes before KEY locks.
The default I believe is 5 minutes, but you can use the slider to increase the number of minutes.

Could this be 5 minutes of inactivity?

 

As long as I stay at the keyboard (half a day), Key could remain open. Once I leave the keyboard, I might want it to autolock in 5 minutes... Just as an idea...

Hi, come to think about it. I do think it says inactivity in KEY settings. But I'm not around a desktop computer so I can't check.

I believe I set mine as 30 minutes I inactivity before it auto locks.

I just set Key to 5 min timeout, and spent some VERY active 5 mins on the web. Key is locked.

 

No. It's not time inactive. It's absolute time.

Or... more good to say:

 

 "it's inactive time with Key UI";

 

If you do something with Key  - it's not possible to "lock" (?);

Last action with Key - five minutes (or other, which available time-setting) - autolock.

Thanks for Repling. My lock time is 5mins. It's default setting.

I mean, Key goes inactive and lock for check mail, and many other activities……

I don't know whether lock Key absolute time or inactive. But chage minutes is good. I will change setting when I change password.
