To turn on the unlock pattern go to the home screen, press the Menu button, select Security & location, and use the options there to change the unlock pattern, require its use, and optionally make it visible.

The unlock pattern is only used when you turn the phone on or when the screen is locked after a couple minutes of disuse. It's the equivalent of the iPhone's "slide to unlock" feature, only more secure.
