Is there a reason my iPod touch has the 'slide to unlock' when I hit the home button?

I would like to turn it off. I tried going into setting>general>auto-lock and turning that to 'Never' but that did nothing.

I just find it annoying when I listen to music and have to skip a song that I have to 'unlock' my ipod then hit the skip button (shake to shuffle doesn't work that great I find).

Any advice???

    It should not be lock when you press the home button.

    But when the iPod is locked, you can change the song and double push the home button. (then you get a control panel you can choose between change your song and change the sound)

    Thanks Matgal for your reply.
    Ever since I have owned it each time I 'wake' it up by hitting the home button I get the 'slide to unlock' page (page with the slider at the bottom and date & time at the top). Doesn't seen to be a way to skip that page.

    Hey your right about the double push of the home button. I did that and did get the music control panel. Thanks a bunch!!!
