how to stay logged in


Everytime my laptop goes into sleep mode I have to log back in. I looked in the menu but couldn't find anything. How do I stay logged in so I don't have to constantly enter my password?

this is by design, it's a security feature called screen locker and technically you are not logging out/in.
so look for that in your menu: "screenlocker", or "lock".

I just looked under system settings and it was easy to find. I just didn't know what to look for.
