Automatic login


When I leave my ubuntu 10.04 desktop idle, it logs me out and I have to login by entering my password. I would like to do away with the logging out function
thank you

It not log out user automatically.

When you leave your pc ideal screen saver will start and lock your screen.

If you don't want to lockout screen, disable screen saver or unchecked lock screen option.
