Just wanted to see if this was true for anyone else or just me.

When using the standard CM7 lock screen, if my menu button is pushed, it unlocks the device. I was constantly finding my phone unlocked while in my pocket because of this.

I've already looked under Settings --> CyanogenMod Settings --> Lockscreen --> Unlock options and Menu unlock is NOT checked; but appears to be working as though it is anyway. I've tried enabling it, disabling it, etc... still the menu button always unlocks the device.

In the interim, I've just been using WidgetLocker -- but wanted to see if anyone else had the same issue or if something went awry and I should re-flash and start over. I understand it's beta, but haven't seen anyone else comment about this issue nor seen it listed anywhere as a bug to be resolved.

This happened on the original beta release #0 and still occurs on nightly #5.

Funny, Mr. Self-Proclaimed-Policeman, I read a sticky from one of the board moderators saying I can do exactly that. Note that your title says "Themer" Not "Moderator". What "we" (because obviously I speak for everyone just as you do /sarcasm) don't need are post like this discouraging new people such as myself, and board veterans, posting questions and starting discussions trying to get help. If you don't want to read my post, then skip it. Simple. (see I can do the whole speak with authority thing too!)

I got my question answered, and I'm not looking to start anything -- but there is no good reason for you or anyone else to come into posts and try to tell people what they can and cannot do. You are no better or worse than anyone else and have no special entitlement that grants you such things. I see this all over the place and it's just plain ridiculous.

For good measure I will quote the sticky for you just so there is no further misunderstandings, and life can move on:

[NOTE]Posting new threads about ROMs-Please Read

I wanted to post this thread because there has been some talk about people posting new threads about roms instead of posting in the official rom's thread.

As of now I will say. People CAN post questions about any rom anywhere in the DX forum. It DOES NOT need to be in the rom official thread. For the reason that alot of questions will get lost in the craziness of the 10-100's of pages that the official threads create so quickly.We want this forum to be open. And allow people to post what they want without feeling like they are doing something wrong. And we also want people's questions and requests to be answered as quick as possible. And sometimes its quicker to post a new thread. With that said, i want to move onto the topic of requests.

Requests for CM7 features at the moment will not happen. Its not fully supported yet. It is still in beta. so the main mission now is to get the basic features already implemented to work correctly.And then once its fully supported then, Yes requests will be more likely to be something the devs will look to. Now im speaking in regards to CM7.

Im not sure about what Jrummy,Kov, and Fab have to say when it comes to requests for Apex and Liberty, but i will ask them how they want their requests and questions handled. But as for now I would say for ALL roms, if you have a question or request. Post a new thread with [CM7] or [LIBERTY] or [APEX] prefix. So that people know what rom your talking about to avoid confusion. I hope this helps. Please feel feel to ask questions here about this topic if needed.

Edit: Also one thing i noticed people saying, that sometimes get left and forgotten about is the search feature. so before you post a new thread asking a question try out the search button at the top and if that doesnt work then post a new thread.
Have a wonderful day Dewguzzler.

But to the OP:

Settings > CyanogenMod Settings > Lockscreen > Unlock Options > Menu Unlock

Is that checked? If so, uncheck it.

Op already said it was not checked... I have same issue also, and mentioned it in the release thread, but other issues are probably higher priority

this problem has already been addressed to the one in the OP

Anyone else notice that you can unlock your device by pressing the menu button on the lockscreen? Even with this option unchecked in the lockscreen settings it will still unlock by pressing menu.
located HERE

glad to see the search forum tool was used

I played with the settings a lot.
1. No auto brightness option anywhere. Tried with the widget option but still no auto brightness.
2. GPS is completely out of whack. first the icon doesnt show up, second GPS direction is 90 degrees off (even third party GPS apps too), third navigation keeps waiting for location.
3. Weather from "my location" doesnt work in news and weather widget. keeps saying set custom location
4. Camera starts, takes shot and then freezes (I know cvpcs said camera doesnt work)
5. Changing theme worked but took out notification widgets but reboot fixes that
6. Video playback problem. 720p videos doesn't play (3gpp, mp4). Flash works youtube, imdb and flixter movie trailes doesnt . Third party player such as mobo can play 720p videos but only with software decoding enabled. XDA Netflix hacked app works till it goes to the video playing screen where it gets stuck then FCs after pressing back button
7. Music doesnt resume after call when on bluetooth headset
8. Screen on and screen off both animation option doesnt work
9. "profiles" doesnt work
10. Screen gets unlock by pressing the menu key (and yes the "menu key unlock" check box is unchecked)
11. Live wallpaper doesnt work, probably related with video issue
12. Battery use screen reports weird. Cell standby is unusually high. is it due to the visual bug in froyo. Battery seem to drain faster too but not sure about that yet but people are reporting similar incidents on page 43
13. Stock Music player cant play .wma music files
14. DSP manager FCs sometime when invoking "phone" app

GPS seem to be working by putting gps.shadow.so in /system/lib/hw. location service still doesnt work btw. Also compass in maps still seems 90 degrees off. I calibrated compass
Maps recent update fixed the 90 degree off bug. Now everything is great

I'll keep updating this post with bugs that I find myself or I come on this forum.
Posted HERE

have a good day vlad

Of course you couldn't just let it go -- douche bags can never let things like this go. Search was not working for me (scripting is disabled on my work PC - and golly gee ya need scripting for search to work). So, I made a post and asked a question -- which again if you read what I quoted to you, you would understand why.

But - I need not explain myself to you any further. People like you are exactly why I only read forums and hardly ever sign up and post anything. But I thought, maybe this place would be different. Nope.

I've had my fill here -- won't see me post anything again.

You win at the internet Jesse Perkins. Your Mom must be so proud!

Yep and only over 1200 messages to go through. I came to this forum because I thought friendliness was king. Sure i've been using cm7 since it was released. I did have some thoughts and questions. Search doesn't produce answers or it shows hundreds of possibilities. But as of now, ill keep the questions to myself, and wait for someone else to get raked over the coals. As you can see I am more of a lurker mainly as a result of threads like this.
