    Lightbulb how to keep computer from logging out

    Hi! How can I keep my computer (with Ubuntu 20.10) recently installed - from logging off, every time it goes to sleep? I am not a business - I just use my computer at home. Thanks!

    Re: how to keep computer from logging out

    Ubuntu 20.10 (along with all flavors) is End-of-Life

    - https://fridge.ubuntu.com/2021/07/25...-july-22-2021/

    - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades

    If it was only recently installed; I'd suggest starting with a supported release of Ubuntu/Lubuntu; being aware that 20.10 means the 2020-October release; which had 9 months of supported life, thus 10 (or October) + 9 months = 2021-July for EOL. Only LTS or long term releases come with longer lives (ie. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS comes with 5 years of support; Lubuntu 20.04 LTS being a flavor comes with 3 years of supported life.

    As for locking, look at https://manual.lubuntu.me/stable/3/3.2/3.2.20/screensaver.html

    (where the manual page I provided is the stable release, ie. currently 21.04)

    though please note - the screenlock is a different routine to what you get when you initially login, so if you're being returned to `sddm` or the greeter (ie. actually being logged out), that won't be your issue (xscreensaver's lock screen is very different to the greeter)

    The easiest way is to kill the screensaver:
    "Preferences -> LXQt settings -> Session settings", select "Autostart" and untick XScreensaver.
