  6. 6
    Tap on an option.
    You can change the time of the automatic lock to the period of time between "Immediately" and "30 minutes". Let's say that you would like to keep a relatively short time-out, let us say, "30 seconds", to save your battery life; but you don't want to be bothered with unlocking your phone after it has been on relatively recently. Then, you can set the value to 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or even 30 minutes.

  8. 8
    Press the power button once more.
    The phone will turn back on without requiring the lock pattern because your pressing the button will have been within 5 minutes of the screen turning off.
