I configured Ubuntu to auto-log me in w/o pw entry (even though my account has a pw) but when I recover after having the laptop in suspend mode, it asks for my pw.  Can I configure it to not ask for any pws?  I'm trying to set this laptop up as an internet kiosk function.

    Check System -> Preferences -> Screen Saver.  Is there a check mark in "Lock screen when screensaver is active"?

    Accepted Solution

    If there's no check mark there then run gconf-editor and navigate to apps/gnome-power-manager/lock. Clear all the check marks except "use_screensaver_settings"
