    Disable screen lock on lid close


    Im running mint 11 and im trying to disable to need to input my password after i re-open my laptop lid.

    I have already disabled the lock screen when screen saver is active, and i have disabled it in my user settings so i don't have to enter a pw on start-up.

    Any ideas?

    In the XFCE edition the option is under the power manager but for Gnome it is a bit more complicated:

    Press Alt + F2 and run gconf-editor. You should do this as your user and not root.
    Go to apps -> gnome-power-manager -> lock and uncheck at least suspend and hibernate.
    Go to desktop -> gnome -> lockdown and check disable_lock_screen

    Congratulations, you now have an insecure laptop ^_^
