I want to disable the lock screen after suspend session of Lubuntu. But it seems Lubuntu doesn't have a lot of fans. Can anyone help me on this issue?

I don't want to lock the screen after suspension. Does anyone know which file deals this locking in Lubuntu?

Go to Menu > Preferences > Power Manager > Security then uncheck box marked "Lock screen when system is going for sleep". You may have to log out and log back in for it to take effect.

  • I really wish there was some more convenient method, i.e. not having to log out and back in. I like to turn off the lock screen for limited periods of time, and having to continually disrupt my desktop is kind of a deal breaker.

  • is this the standard procedure of Lubuntu? cause there is no security tab in Power Manager on LXQt May 22, 2021 at 5:41
  • Lockscreen in Lubuntu 20.04 now appears to be located in Menu > Preferences > Screensaver. At the bottom of the "Display Modes" window there is a checkbox which from memory is disabled on a new install. It goes to a screensaver instead, which can be disabled at the top of window in the "Mode" box.
