Introduction

This modification is really simple but effective. if your using the SSH shell your phone screen turns off and kills the session since you can only change from 1 to 3 minutes. this modification allows you to add as many values as you desire. I included the changes to add "5 Minutes" and "Never" but more can be done by following the same template.

The Change

Look for the file securityconfig-assistant.js in /usr/share/palm/application/com.palm.app.screenlock/app/controllers and open it with the editor your most comfortable with. the line to look for is as follows.

Note: On newer versions (WebOS 1.0.3), this is in /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.screenlock/app/controllers

//Available Timer Values.
	availableTimers: [{label: $L('30 seconds'), value:30},{label: $L('1 minute'), value:60},{label: $L('2 minutes'), value:120},{label: $L('3 minutes'), value:180}],

Change to:

//Available Timer Values.
	availableTimers: [{label: $L('30 seconds'), value:30},{label: $L('1 minute'), value:60},{label: $L('2 minutes'), value:120},{label: $L('3 minutes'), value:180},{label: $L('5 minutes'), value:300},{label: $L('Never'), value:10800}],

NOTE: The time is listed in their under seconds and "Never" is actually 3 hours as not to kill battery life should you forget you set it to never and left your screen on as i've done a few times myself. you can set this value or add more values very easily and the listbox will allow scrolling.
