    How to set different values for screen timeout and screen lock?


    I want to assign different values to screen timeout and to screen lock.

    i.e. I want the screen to timeout after 10 minutes but activate the screen lock after 1 hour.

    Right now I do not see an option to do so. You can only make it lock at the same time it timeouts, or not at all.

    Maybe an app can do it?

    :)
