Wake Mint 14 from suspend/sleep without password

Postby amicose on Fri Feb 22, 2013 10:22 am

Surprised to see no information about this quite simple request. I've managed to enable automatic login, which oddly is a two step process in System Settings/User Accounts and Administration/Login Window. Can't find any option to allow Mint to wake without password though. Any ideas?

Thanks

although I don't see why you'd wanna do this bc either a) set your sleep time to longer and it won't be as bothersome or b) change your password to something real short like 123
IMO it's good for there to be a password to login and to wake up, incase I wanna walk away for a bit. It bothered me at first too, so I changed the power options to never go to sleep or suspend unless I tell it too, and set it to only go to screensaver after 30 minutes of inactivity. That way I only have to type the pw when I restart it or tell it to go to sleep.

It's actually pretty simple.

Menu-->System tools -->System Settings -->Brightness and lock--> Uncheck "Require my password when waking from suspend".

These work on linux mint 14, Cinnamon.

Hope it helps.

Thanks, I've been looking for this!

By the way you wouldn't happen to know a way to make my username highlighted/selected at boot?
As it stands I have to select my user name before entering password. I only have one user I don't see why I should have to select myself before logging in.
I cant even hit enter or tab, I have to select my username with the mouse or touch pad.
Thanks again.
