    I recently upgraded my software to the newest 5.0 version. However, it seems like the ability to lock the keyboard is gone!

    When I press the top left hand button (lock key shortcut), nothing happens. Tried doing a hard and soft reset. Still doesn't work.

    I tot that my button was spoilt, so I programmed QL to have a lock device shortcut. But guess what? Nothing happened either!

    I am aware that I can press and hold the A key to do a pseduo lock, but that is not what I want...

    Anyone else facing the same problem?

    Does the screen dim? or does ABSOLUTELY nothing happen?

    Absolutely nothing happens. Just downloaded the Beiks Keyboard locker to test. And it does nothing as well.

    Try calling yourself and press the lock button while your phone is ringing. For me, pushing the lock button also mutes the ringer while receving a call. If that doesn't work, the button itself might have stop functioning correctly. Sorry I'm not of much help, but that's all I can think of.

    I would do a backup and then a clean wipe of the entire device. Then try loading the OS back on

    Im on OS .509 and my lock button works. When I press it, the screen dims to black, just like it's supposed to...

    The bug is for versions .461.... the .509 update solves it. unfortunately i cant seem to be able to update my version yet either via wireless or desktop manager. (I am in Singapore.)

    Thanks for the replies though. It's good to know that the cause of it was due to the software bug and not my BB.

    my keyboard lock is gone as well. I just realized it over the weekend. I can still lock it on my 9700 when I press the top left button, but it won't lock when I holster it, nor does the k shortcut work on my keyboard.

    There has been too many discussions about the lock key with the OS 5.0. There is no bug and it has not gone. It has just chnaged. The key (used to be called the lock key, on the top left) is now "standby" key in OS 5.0. That is what it does.

    It is like the city of "Leningrad" in old Russia. It is now called "Saint Petersburg". It does not mean the city is gone. The name has changed.

    It's more than just a name change. I used to have my side button lock my keyboard but now i can't due that do to the change.
