    Default Disabling password on resume from suspend

    I've set up a media box for mythtv based on OpenSUSE 11.3 and LXDE.

    By default, the screen gets locked prior to a suspend. On resume, therefore, the screen is locked and requires a password to unlock.

    I need to disable this action.

    In KDE4, I can do that by going to the power management settings and un-selecting the appropriate check box.

    In LXDE, however, I can find no such settings. There must be a config file somewhere that I can tweak to turn off the screen lock prior to suspend, but I have no idea what it is.

    Can anyone help? I've also left a similar post on the LXDE forums.

    I think the easiest way is to disable screen locking in the screen saver settings.

    LXDE uses xscreensaver which appears to lock the screen by design if enabled.

    man xscreensaver-command

    man xscreensaver

    Thanks guys.

    I've decided just to stick with KDE.

    I could prevent xscreensaver from locking the screen, but it did not prevent the lock before suspend. The xfce power manager purportedly runs in LXDE, but when I tried it, it did not respect the settings I wanted.

    The KDE power management scheme Just Works for what I need. Anyway, my media box has plenty of grunt and I've just gone through and turned off a few un-needed KDE and system services.

    If you don't need screensaver you could just remove xscreensaver from your system - it mighty be much easier when want to have some thin X enviroment.

    Yes, that's an interesting thought...
