Since SFOS Saimaa and until current Lapuanjoki, I couldn't force lock the device (must wait until the autolock delay is expired); the "Lock Device" app ( is no longer working. As I didn't notice anyone else with the same issue, I suspect it's only me. However, I experienced it with both Jolla phone and XperiaX, so I don't think I did anything wrong.

Any known workaround?

Just to be sure: It isn't possible to lock the device by double-pressing the power-button?

It is, but this doesn't really lock (no code required to unlock)

OOPS! Just discovered the reason. I use Powermenu2 with 'Flashlight on double key press' option (which doesn't work by the way). After having disabled it, force lock with power button is back.

Really sorry.

@bocephus Thx for closing. The remaining question is this: why is LockDevice not working?

sh -c "dbus-send --system --type=method_call --dest=org.nemomobile.lipstick /devicelock org.nemomobile.lipstick.devicelock.setState int32:1 & dbus-send --system --print-reply --type="method_call" /com/nokia/mce/request"

@objectifnul: could you open a new question about that? I'm curious, too.
