debian remove log-on screen

When nothing happens on my screen for a while, I don't get a
traditional screen saver. What I do get is a log-on screen that
demands my password before I can get control of Debian again.
I want to get rid of it. It keeps poping up and messing things up.
How do I remove this unwanted log-on screen ?

sounds like your screensaver has been configured to lock the screen when it activates. Look for your screensaver settings. If you want more detailed instructions you'll need to provide more information: for example what version of Debian you are using and what desktop (if any).
