Is the lockscreen really supposed to timeout after just 10 seconds?
I cant understand all the hype with live updates of pictures, weather etc on the lockscreen if the screen goes black after just 10 seconds?
When using the phone with the wireless charging dock, it would be nice to have a "live" screen, that is locked with a password at the same time. There might be an app that does this, but shouldnt this be what the lockscreen is supposed to do?

Go to Settings > Lock Screen then to "Screen times out after..." and change it.
Personally I have mine set to "Never" so I can just do it manually via the on/off/sleep button on the side, but then mines normally plugged in charging on my desk most of the day.

Thanks for your reply.
However, isnt the "Screen times out after ..." used for the main screen time before going to lockscreen? I have tried every option in the list, and the lockscreen goes black after 10 seconds, regardless of selected option.

I'm not defending WP8 design or anything, god knows I have my fair share of complaints about it, but this borders on ridiculous. It's a lock screen not a notification center.

All I say is that if you could configre the timeout/dimmer of the lockscreen you would increase the value of the lockscreen and eliminate much of the need for 3rdparty Nightstand apps etc. Why not work as a lockscreen and a notification center.

Microsoft admits it 'ran out of time' on Windows Phone 8 notification center | The Verge
But if what you're asking for is a combined lock screen and notification center then that's a whole new suggestion, and maybe one that would warrant a lock screen timeout setting of its own. But as it stands, with the limited functionality of the current lock screen (it's just a lock screen, not a notification center at this point) asking for a longer lock screen timeout borders on ridiculous.
Yes it is nice :)
