Exclamation [GNOME 2.22.3] [Debian 2.6.26-2-686] Disable screen lock


I am up and down from my computer quite frequently here at work.

Disabling the screenlock would not be a security risk because my machine is in a secure area.

So, with that said how can I disable the screenlock? Entering my password every time I sit back down is getting tiresome!

System->Preferences->Screensaver->Turn off "Activate screensaver when computer is idle" or "Lock screen when screensaver is active".
