Remove password request on recovery from suspend (solved)

Postby Aging Technogeek on Thu Apr 02, 2009 3:04 pm

Until recently I only ran Dell computers and I was never able to get any of them to suspend or hibernate properly. It was not a problem since Mint booted in less than a minute on any machine I put it on.

I recently bought a Hewlitt-Packard Pavilion DV9500T (T7700 core 2 duo, 2.4 GHz, 2 Gib ram, @x 120 Gib, 7200 rpm HDD, Nvidia GeForce 8400mM GS w/ 512 Mib ram, Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 AGN card; dual boot Mint 6 main and Mint 6 XFCE). This computer suspends and hibernates perfectly in either OS but the need to enter my password on recovery slows things down so much that I might as well shutdown and reboot.

Is there a way to eliminate the password requirement?

I'm not worried about the security aspects. I'm the only user on the system and it is not in a public place so random passers-by are not a problem.

I would like to use suspend and hibernate as I occasionally need to leave a session without finishing everything I'm doing but the need to enter my password gets a little irksome after a while. As I've said in other posts, I like a fast booting, fast running OS.

Here's my guess.
Alt F2 and run gconf-editor
Select apps --> gnome-power-manager --> lock
Uncheck suspend and hibernate.

Along this line, could someone tell me how to remove the password request on shutdown or restart?

Herbivore:

To disable password on login go to Control Center=>System=>Login Window=>Security. Check "Enable Automatic Login" and uncheck "Enable Timed Login".

To avoid password requests on logout just use the Quit button in the menu. This will give you the choice of shutdown, restart, suspend or hibernate but will not request your password.

P.S. You really should have started a new thread. Solved threads are rarely checked for new posts. The only reason I found your question is I was the original poster and I occasionally check my old posts for just this reason.
