Disable (initial) screen lock

KeyguardManager keyguardManager = (KeyguardManager)getSystemService(Activity.KEYGUARD_SERVICE); KeyguardLock lock = keyguardManager.newKeyguardLock(KEYGUARD_SERVICE); lock.disableKeyguard(); in androidmanifest: <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.DISABLE_KEYGUARD"></uses-permission>
