Skip gdm3 login after timeout


Gnome (debian testing/unstable) starts without my having to give my password to gdm3, I suppose because of the lines in /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf:
AutomaticLoginEnable = true
AutomaticLogin = klaas
After some time of inactivity I still have to login with my password.
How, where, can i change this behavior ?
Nobody else can possibly use this computer.

Yep, those 2 entries make sure that no login is needed.

This might be your screensaver, have you checked your settings (locking the screen is one of the editable possibilities).
