From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

Fall Asleep with Counting Sheep
Do you have trouble sleeping? Have you tried counting sheep – the traditional way? If that didn’t work, have a look at XDA forum member RDT‘s modern take on this old tried and tested method.
Try Counting Sheep on your Windows Mobile device – the idea is to drag backflipping sheep over the bridge on your screen over and over again, inducing boredom and sending yourself to sleep.
The idea, presumably is to induce boredom while occupying the mind with something simple, repetitive, and rhythmic, all of which are known to help humans sleep.
RDT advises to plug your device into a charger if you intend to use the app to send yourself to sleep as it will run until you wake up – where you will be able to review the number of sheep that you have counted.
Runs on Pocket PC 2002 and higher.
