It helps to know what device model and OS you are using though the following steps for changing from pattern lock to slide are for Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich):
1. Unlock your Android device
2. Find the Applications menu and select "Settings"
3. Under the "PERSONAL" group, select " Security"
4. Under "SCREEN SECURITY" group, select "Screen Lock"
This will ask for the security pattern first.
5. The options for screen lock will appear, select "Slide" and you are done!
Hope this helps.

Lenovo R400 Error 0210 stuck key 5b
Stuck key error means that one or more keys on the keyboard are stuck. It's possible that a liquid spill can also cause one or more keys to electrically "short" causing the error. Inspect the keyboard and check if any keys are mechanically stuck.
If you're mechanically handy you can remove the keyboard, inspect any chances of damage or corrosion. Plug it back and see if error is still occurring.
Reset BIOS to default settings. Perform Flee Power - remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and turn ON the computer.
