    I had set up my Password Keeper but what I am noticing is that once I am in it and idle for a few seconds to a few minutes it does not go back to the screen where you have to enter your password to get into the password keeper. I thought that it was suppose to automaticaly go back to that screen when idle. At least that's what I recall seein and hearing on a video demonstration. Any answers?

    Do you care to elaborate on that?

    Nope, not working. What's the point of the password keeper if it's not going to revert back to the password screen to get into your passwords???

    Mine "closes" if I don't use it. What device/OS do you have that might help someone figure it out.

    The limitation I had with it was that sometimes I wanted to work on my pc and it does not have a desktop version. Otherwise I used it regularly on the bb.

    Mine asks for the password if I even simply just go to another program for a second

    Like mas3222 noted, if I go to another program and don't close out of Password Keeper, it will ask for my password when I go back into PK. But, if I let the phone idle while in PW, when I come back to it I am still in the screen before the time-out. Is it supposed to go back to the password entry screen? I wouldn't leave PW open in the first place, but it is a good question.

    I have OS 5.0.0395. I've only had the phone for a couple of months. I don't have a password set to get into my phone, just for the password keeper, which it does not go back to the password screen when idol.

    Mine asks for the password again if I switch applications. For instance, if I'm in pk and switch to the browser, it asks for the password again when I switch back to pk.

    To me it makes sense -- I just remember to close pk or lock my phone -- but I can see how a time out setting (like for phone lock) might be a nice added feature. I also use a password to lock my phone, and that has an idle timeout setting.

    If you leave the app idle, the screen times-out but the app is still open and running - it won't ask for password upon waking the phone. If you put PK in the background, it will prompt for password upon reopening.
