{{Admon/tip|Unlocking Screen & Disabling Screen Lock|By default, your account will go into screen-saver (lock-out) mode after a few minutes of inactivity. Usually, you will need to enter your user password to return to your desktop. '''The Gnome 3 desktop environment requires that you click and drag your mouse pointer upwards in order to access and enter your password'''.
Although locking your screen is a good security precaution, it can be annoying while performing labs. To '''disable''' the screen lock feature: '''Right-click''' on your username at the top right-hand corner, click '''Settings''' in the context menu, click the '''Privacy''' icon, and click the "'''on'''" value by the lock option to turn ''Automatic Screen Lock'' to '''OFF'''. When finished, click the '''Close''' button, and then close the Settings screen.
