    Are you talking about keeping the screen on so it doesnt sleep? if you are this one should work for you screen on toggler of your looking for locking the phone so your 5 year old cant mess with it but still use it you might like this smart lock lite make sure to watch the video

    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

    Ok so just to clarify as I've never had a tablet, I'm now basically looking for a cheap rugget android tablet on which I can download that app, is that correct?

    I would say "correct" but keep in mind you are getting what you pay for.
    I absolutely love my modded and rommed gtab it hangs with all the big dogs, but as for stock... not so much it leaves a lot to be desired

    well, i finally got round to buying a very cheap tablet made by scroll essential but it appears it doesnt have google play store on it and no way of getting it on that i can see, so I can't download the app. So frustrating!

    Registered to tell you oakvad, the only app I could find to lock my phone so that my 2 year old can watch movies is MX Player, I know my brother in law has it on his Sony Z Tab as well

    That's correct, if the tablet come with the Android Market AKA Play Store, you're all set. Otherwise you'll have to find another source for the app or add the Play store app to the tablet you get. Might be a hassle.
