Hi Alien#007,

My EUR 0.02

uups, forgot: you can find it in the KDE Control Center, I think it is hidden in the "Desktop Appearance" area...

The screensaver in KDE *locks* the screen by default (which is sensible, because when you are out of Office, evil colleagues cannot go to your box and read you mail). So you are asked for the password again.

HTH, Peter

You can just right-click on the background, choose Configure Desktop. There you will find the screensaver settings. On the right hand side, uncheck Require password to stop screensaver.

Hello Alien#007,

maybe there a xscreensaver installed underneath the KDE? Type "ALT+F"" in KDE and issue the command "xscreensaver-demo", there you get the xscreensaver control panel - if it is installed.

HTH, Peter

Hm this must be some kind of error beacuse after 20minutes the screen goes blank and ^[^X appears to the top left side of monitor, after that puts me back in the login screen and in the xconsole says: "the signal 15 recived". That's happening on kdm and xdm. I just don't know wich application is causing this. Any suggestions?
