Fix a missing lock screen

This tip is only for webOS slider phones

One bug that sometimes occurs with webOS slider phones is that you will go to press the power button on the phone and it will just turn on instead of giving you the standard lock screen with the "Drag up to unlock" padlock. From what we can tell this occurs because the phone thinks that the slider is already open, which would cause it to bypass that lock screen altogether. Fortunately, there is a really simple fix for this. Just slide the phone open and then closed again to "reset" the slider mechanism and your lock screen with return the next time you press the power button.
