    Try not pressing last the home button in the assistivetouch to go to the home screen if you want it to auto lock. This is the only time autolock will work properly.

    This seems to be the work-around for the issue until it's corrected. I'm testing this right now and will report back with my findings.

    I've been testing this for the last 30 minutes or so and found that if the AssistiveTouch panel is the *last thing pressed*, even if it's just to return the panel to it's minimized size, the screen will *not* AutoLock.

     

    To get AutoLock to function normally, something other than the AssitiveTouch panel needs to be pressed. This can be a simple screen swipe.

     

    Because of the additional motion (screen swipe or otherwise) required to get the screen to AutoLock correctly and not stay on indefinitely, I really doubt this is "by design". Seems like a nasty bug that will bite someone hard and kill their battery without them knowing it.

    Hi, I have the same problem.. Iphone4S, using assesive touch, upgraded to iOS6 from the phone and autolock doesn't work anymore, especially after opening and close certain apps like facebook and Instagram. The screen doesn't go dim automatically.

    Apple Care suggest restoring the phone back to factory setting and use iTunes to do the rest.

    See my post above yours for a tested work-around.

    Adding onto my testing:

     

    iPhone 4 (not S) updated over the air (OTA) with iOS 6 has the AssistiveTouch/AutoLock issue

     

    iPad 3 (new iPad) updated directly through iTunes via .ipsw file with iOS 6 also has the AssistiveTouch/AutoLock issue.

     

    So updating to iOS 6 either through iTunes (.ipsw file) or over the air (OTA) does not matter. The issue exists regardless of the update method.

    the problem is definetly related with Assistive Touch.

     

    here is the only solution I found: after you closed an app using assistive touch home button, just touch some arbitrary place on the home screen. you may try flipping the page or just touch and move slighly, but don't run another app, just touch somewhere on the screen. then you will see that the auto lock will work (even though you have apps in multitask bar).

     

    i guess when you use the assistive touch home button, it got stuck somehow.

    Just adding my voice to chorus experiencing this problem.  Problem on 4S after updating to iOS6.  I’ve done restores and reboots no luck.  I am running Assistive Touch so will give that workaround a try.  Usually close all Apps before putting the phone down to lock.

    This seems to be both the situation and solution in my case.  Thanks Mate.

    Hi, Just like to add that I'm having the same problem.  4S updated to IOS 6 via iTunes.  Auto-lock failing to work most times, AssistiveTouch activated. 

     

    While the work arounds are great for the short term, remembering to do them is not easy.  And .... only know that auto-lock didn't activate when battery almost dead.  Not so bad when I'm at home but out on the road this is a real hassle.

     

    I did NOT have this problem before updating to IOS 6.  Worse, I told all my friends about using AssistiveTouch .... now feel bad that I may cause them this problem.

     

    I believe it is a bug as I did not see this as a "feature" of AssistiveTouch when I looked through the list of 200 new features in IOS 6.  If this is something Apple wanted to do as a "feature" I'm sure they would have highlighted it.

    I got the same problem with my 4S, and yes i'm using assistive touch too.

    it makes the battery drain faster.
