I am using Gnome 3.6 and I am quite annoyed by the login screen when my computer wakes up. The new implementation in Gnome includes two steps. First you have to hit Esc or click and drag upward (slide), so the big clock disappears, and then enter your credentials. I am interested in removing the first part.

this is not possible at the moment, you could switch your display-manager from gdm to lightDM to get the old lock screen back. –  david Nov 9 '12 at 11:52
