Definite's Extractor

My findings on Life, Linux, Open Source, and so on.

Turn-off the auto lock when you close the lid

I often use my netbook on bus and when waiting for bus.
However I find it is quite annoy that it is locked when I closed the lid.

In order to avoid the auto lock, the UI for both gnome-power-manager and gnome-screensaver are insufficient.

Run

gconf-editor /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock&

and uncheck both
blank_screen, which locks screen immediately when screen is blank (including when you close the lid);

and use_screensaver_settings which will also locks the screen immediately when screen is blank.
