    hi Oakvad, I signed up to this site specifically to ask if you had any luck with this, as you're after exactly what I would like too.

    I'm sick of giving my galaxy s2 (which has a fantastic screen lock feature while a video is playing) to my 2 year old, so hoped to buy her a cheap tablet but finding one with a screen lock whilst playing video seems hard to find.

    Did you get anywhere with this?

    I have not found anything yet. As far as I know the samsung is the only one with this feature.
    Still doing some research though, and I will post if I find anything

    Well if you just want to have it when your kid watches movies you should probably be looking for a video player that does what you want. I found this one https://market.android.com/details?i...eoplayer&hl=en that i think does exactly what you want. It is 99 cents but 99 cents is basically free
