    Do you have it set to sleep after a few minutes? Look in Settings.

    Go to Settings, General and scroll down to Auto Lock where you can make the necessary adjustment which includes NEVER! I have to be honest somewhere in the back of my mind I recall seeing something about doing so with caution...anyone hear anything similar?
