Sure, you can lock manually. The point is that the default behavior helps more

It's not. The perception of what it's needed/secure changes in time.
No windows desktop had login 15 years ago. Now it's definitely different.
released in July 1993 are 22
years and besides that it *is* because you can't prevent somebody from
shoot in his foot
if someone has his notebook on a desk in a cafe and goes to the toilet
without close the lid or lock it manually he has lost the game entirely
because even a minute is too long and so lock after 5 or 10 minutes
