Hello Lorn,

My problem is, that sometimes it won't...
Let's assume the "On Battery" Power Management settings for
"Dim light", "Display off" and "Suspend" are 10s, 30s and 1min
and after using the phone, I'll put it in a pocket. The touch screen will be touched
all the time... and "Suspend" (or even "Display off" etc) might never be reached!
And that's very bad for the operating time!

Screen lock currently will only lock the screen, but won't assure the
"Suspend" (or "Display off", if "Suspend" is disabled etc) to happen.
(If nothing will touch the screen, I don't need a screen lock.)
Why is the Screen lock not setting the display to "Display off" or even
invoke a suspend (if this is enabled) after a couple of seconds.
That's better for the battery, or not?

Therefore the idea to manually suspend the FR...
and to have an icon for that, which is easy to reach and not needed any more,
since the screen of a suspended FR needs not to be locked.
