Ubuntu 14.04 locks my screen after a few second. I don't always have to log in after this happens. Most of the time I do.
It's about every 20-30 seconds that I have to do this.
I have tried to change the settings and turn of screen lock but nothing seems to work.

I'm thinking of going to Windows 8 because this should be a simple fix?
