Help needed, lost Auto-lock...
It's not the end of the world, and definitely not as important as other people's issues with freezes and endless reboots, but this is still annoying...
I JB my 3Gs, 3.1.3, with Spirit last week, and I noticed that my phone won't auto-lock (ie. sleep after 1~5 mins) anymore... I've tried many different things, change the settings, respring, reboot, etc etc... I haven't done a full restore yet, but I guess that's my last option? I'm just hoping it's something simple that I've missed?
Thanks for any help...

I don't use Supreme Preferences anymore though due to some of the stability issues that have been well noted, hence its removal from the primary Cydia repositories, but it was certainly worth it back when I hadn't figured out how to changes settings directly using SSH and/or iFile instead.
If you're comfortable using SSH (or iFile) and manually making changes all you have to do is change the General.plist file located in /var/stash/Applications.pwn/Preferences.app. Look for the times strings near the bottom of the file and simply change the integer values as needed. ****MAKE SURE TO BACK UP THE ORIGINAL FILE FIRST SO YOU CAN SIMPLY REVERT BACK TO IT IF THE CHANGES DON'T WORK FOR YOU OR YOU MESS SOMETHING UP****
Also, this may not apply exactly to different OS versions or devices, but is definitely the case on my 3.0.1 2G iPhone.
For some reason I often have to try rebooting and/or respringing a few times before the changes actually stick but this method did work for me eventually after some trial and error.
