View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Timed screen lock?

July 23rd, 2008, 05:41 PM
How can I get my computer to screen lock after a period of time - I don't need it to 'sleep' I just need to make sure after a period of time of inactivity - my computer locks and my password is required for use.

Thanks guys.

Check the screen saver section.

Edit: You don't actually have to use one. The first screen saver option is 'blank screen', my favorite. :)

system --> preferences --> screensaver

check the two bottom check boxes and choose a time in minutes from the slider
