View Full Version : how to disable the lock screen on standby
Mar 13th 2009, 12:38 PM
i got kubuntu 8.04 running on an autonomous system that is
turned of and off by another remote machine
however when i put the machine into standby and turn in back on again
using wake on lan it displays a lock screen (session locked)
and requests a password
i need to remove/disable this functionality since the machine we
are talking about don't got any input devices (mouse/keyboard)
how can i do this?
thanks in advance

Menu --> System Settings ---> "Advanced" tab ---> "System Administration"-> (Login Manager)
Enable Auto Login
Didn't try any of those on my system here. I advise you to read a bit. It might reduce your security if you enable those options (In terms of ppl access limitations).
I've only tried (Enable Auto-Login) on my Netbook for speed comparison with other Netbooks & disabled it afterwards.
Hope it helps ;)

Thanks for your reply
Auto-login is enabled but it seems only to work for the first login after boot
I enabled password-less too but it does nothing. What is this option for anyway?
If i come back from standby it still show the "session locked" dialog and i can only dismiss
it by entering the users password. entering nothing doesn't work.
is there a way to physically delete this lockscreen. i would prefer an error message if
it gets back to the desktop.

Found two posts on this, one for Ubuntu & the other for Kubuntu.
The Ubuntu version (that seems to work):
The Kubuntu version (Didn't work):
I was trying to look for more options.
The KDE power manager.
xirex@xirex-desktop-linux:~$ kdesudo kate /usr/share/python-support/kde-guidance-powermanager/guidance-power-manager.py
At line 479
""" Lock the screen and initiate a suspend to RAM (S3). """
if self.config.readBoolEntry("lockOnResume", True):
pass # No warningpopup, that's OK.
Now we need to find that config file where it is set "True"
Am not sure if we need to compile restart or do whatever after changing anything .. it's just a total blind shot.
Awaiting for the real experts to verify this. : P
