This is sort of confusing, but I am assuming you are referring to backing up your iPhone to iCloud and not your computer. Right?
I'm back home (at my computer) and on my wifi and I can find the part where it says "backup now"
I do not know your skill level so don't be offended by my questioning, okay? Are you saying that your iPhone is connected wirelessly to your Wi-Fi network? If so, good, if not, it needs to be. Your iPhone does not need to be connected to your computer or a power source unless your battery is low. If your iPhone is indeed connected wirelessly to your Wi-Fi network, all you should have to do is navigate to Settings/iCloud and then scroll down and select "Storage & Backup" . Afterwards, scroll down, make sure that iCloud Backup is turn ON and then select "Back Up Now" at the bottom of that same screen.
but when I press it it says I have to be connected to wifi (I am) locked (?) and plugged in (I am but not sure why)
It should not take you 12 hours to backup your iPhone to iCloud unless you have dial-up internet or creepy slow DSL.
Once I got to a part that said it would take 12 hours then it craps out again.. :0( not the most computer literate either.. Oh, I SHOULD say that I have a 3Gs..
and that its black..? ;0) (kidding about that part)
Thanks for your time/help..
