How can we improve the Windows platform?

Deploy app to locked device

Just a small issue: When I work on my WP app the phone often times out and locks itself. When I hit the Play button, more often than not, I get the error message that I must first turn on and unlock my phone.

The phone in question is not password protected and has a connection with my PC already (I can browse the phone with Explorer).

It'd be great if Visual Studio automatically turned on & unlocked the phone upon deployment - if needed.

        Just set your screen time out to 5 minutes when developing. That will save you a lot of frustrations;)
