After upgrading to ubuntu 11.10 my screen locks after resuming from suspend. Unticking autolock in gconfig doesnt work anymore. Any ideas?


I did the following in terminal and it worked for me:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install dconf-tools

( the equivalent terminal command is:

 gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.lockdown disable-lock-screen 'true'


Here's a picture of mine:

You can do it in system settings -> screen

change the lock toggle to off
