How to skip the password question after inactivity (gdm3)
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.

I haven't used gnome in some time, but IIRC it's in the settings somewhere, probably in the screensaver settings dialog.

Look for a setting for "Lock screen after X minutes." Like sgosnell said, it is most likely in the screensaver settings, but it might also be in the control center (or whatever it's called) Display or Security settings.

For me (Mint14, gnome 3) it's under "System Settings - Personal - Brightness & lock"
