Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been using Linux Mint on my main laptop for about a year now and have a fairly decent understanding of Linux. I say fairly, by no means an adept.
My old laptop, an e-machines, 32bit single core, was about to be turned into a doorstop, until I discovered Zorin OS 10.
I have used or tried a few distros and have usually come a cropper with issues or learning curves. So I was really pleased to find this system working "out of the box" with all its compiz whistles and bells working..................
So, I installed this about two weeks ago and have been slowly using it for basic jobs. I must admit, Zorin 10 works great on my antique machine.
My only bugbear is this; I can feel the embarrassment flush coming on........
After 10 minutes of the laptop sitting idle, the screen lock comes into play and I have to type in my password (which is lengthy).
OK, Zorin 10 is based on Ubuntu 15.10? So, I found some terminal commands to disable the screen lock but nothing works. Is it in the general GUI, staring me in the face? Or, is there a OS specific command to disable the requirement of a password to log back in?
