Ubuntu – Resuming from Suspend Without a Password

If you are lucky enough to get suspend working in Ubuntu it will ask for a password on resume, unfortunately there is no easy way to disable this feature. It is however posible.

You need to start the configuration editor, this is supposedly in: Applications -> System Tools -> Configuration Editor
You may need to edit your menus to enable it as it starts hidden, it seems to be Gnome’s dirty little secret that it has a registry, similar to the windows one. I don’t have it in my menus at all so in a terminal:


The setting we need for 7.10 is in: apps -> gnome-power-manager -> lock
untick suspend

pity this option is not exposed in the power management applet…….
