You have installed an app that does this.

Start uninstalling apps in reverse order you installed them.

Thanks.  I don't know which app was doing it, but that worked.

I changed the pattern block of my Galaxy Tab A and quickly forgotten my choice. The device is not registered in my samsung account yet so I cannot unlock it by using this method. I tried to "factory reset it"but it doesn't work, ust because I cannot power off the device (I don't remember the pattern and is required for the system to be shut down!). What else I can do????

Well, you could try holding down the power button over 10 seconds to force a shut down.

Then just boot into recovery and select format /system

Volume up, home and power are usually the keys to reset the tablet. Release at logo, then user volume keys to navigate to wipe data/reset.
