View Full Version : [ubuntu] how to delay sleep mode?

June 20th, 2010, 12:23 AM
when i am working on stuff, i will turn away for like 45 seconds and the screen will be off, and then require me to enter my password. I know there is a way to delay this action or turn off the password requirement, but i dont know how for linux. It would be awesome, as it feels that there is more time spent doing passwords then there is actually using the latop at times.

Thanks for your help all!! =]

preferences-> screensaver
preferences-> power manager

alt+f2(if you don't have gconf-editor turned on in the menu)
type: gconf-editor
apps-> gnome-power-manager-> lock
uncheck them all for no password
