Hello Peppermint,

Lately I've been using the suspend feature more in Peppermint 6.  What I'm wondering, and what I'm not able to find in the forum, is if there is a way to wake the computer without entering a password.  Would anyone know if there is a way to wake up a computer running Peppermint 6 without having to enter a password --say like just clicking on ScreenLock?

Thank you,

perknh

[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

Hi perknh, there's not a GUI control for this. You have to remove the i3lock package which is the screen locker and then it will just come straight back to desktop on resume.

Hello murraymint,

I ran:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge i3lockNow I have no problem waking the computer without entering a password.  ;)

Thank you very much.
