I would like to not have to enter my password on resume after closing the lid on my laptop. I used to be able to do this but can't find the option anywhere anymore. all the notes I have found say go to "Screensaver" but when I type "Screensaver" into the dash, nothing comes up.

You can change the lock screen's password request via the Settings -> Brightness and Lock -> Lock section.

There you can toggle the password request, and whether or not the screen should be automatically locked. (You can still lock the screen via the normal Lock Screen UI button, or respective command.)
