    Can I lock the screen in portrait mode?

    Im new to the transformer,i have been using an ipad for over a year. I like being able to lock the screen in portrait or landscape mode by just flipping a switch. I know i ca go to settings and turn off the auto rotate but that locks it in landscape mode. Is there an app or something that can give me a button on the home screen to lock my screen in portrait or landscape mode as i want?

    Thanks
    Brandon

    PS i did search but could notfind the answer.

    Welcome to the forum.

    You can lock it in either mode if you do it correctly. Using the settings will probably not work.

    Rotate your TF to portrait mode.

    Tap the clock to see the notification area.

    Tap the three sliders just below the clock.

    Tap the "AutoRotate Screen" so it toggles to "Off"

    Viola!

    I want to point out that some apps (such as the Market) will force landscape. There is no way around this (just as some apps force portrait mode even when docked with the keyboard).

    Be sure to do this in an app (or at the home screen) that allows portrait mode.

    Thanks. I completely missed the option there and was going all the way into settings and turning it off. It is now working for me.

    Is an app possible?

    Could one write an app to do this automatically?
