Password issue

Asked by Cristian Patilea

Every time my computer is idle for more than 3 minutes, I have to re-enter my password; how can I change that? (I am the only one using the computer, so I don't need to be asked for a password - is any way to change that, also?)

is your screensaver password..?

if yes, go to the menu System → Preferences → Screensaver
There you can uncheck (or check) the password option which is enabled by default each time the screensaver is activated (and the idle time before activating the screensaver).

Hope that helps
