The "power saving" works fine but has nothing to do with the screen-lock.
In "power saving" mode blanks your screen to save battery power until a
turn or other event arrives. Then the screen "wakes up" for the time it
takes to go past that turn and then it goes back to sleep again.

The screen-lock is active regardless of the power saving setting. It
will lock your screen if you have not touched the screen or the keys for
5 minutes (or the period you've set). Once your screen is locked only
the number pad is displayed although the Navicore software is still
running in the background.
