Prevent logging out after being idle


in power management settings i was able to deactivate suspension when being idle. This was important to me, as every time my notebook is in standby for like 5 minutes or longer, the keyboard dies and won't wake till i reboot the computer. Haven't had time to deal with that yet.

What still buggs me though, is even then my notebook will log out after being idle, forcing me to retype my password from time to time.

I was hoping someone could give me a clue on what to do, so my computer will just display my screen, without doing anything like dimming the screen or logging out.

Please provide information as explained in this post

Different Desktop Environments handle screen lock differently, so we need that output.

Turn off the sreenlocker.

This can be done in:
System Settings -> Desktop Behavior -> Screenlock -> Remove tick in "Lock screen after ".


i think this did the Trick, sry i just didn't found it in the Settings. Didn't expect logging out to be in desktop behavior. Thx alot.

Sry, i didn't think this would be needed, as i expected the solution to be in the settings. If you still need it, cause you would like to help me with the keyboard freeze problem be my guest then :smiley:
