Bug Description

The option to set the time before activating screen lock is aviable to be set in the tab "privacy and security" as well als in "brightness & lock" leaving an inconsistent interface

also in "Security and Pivacy" the time options to determin when to lock the sceen after it turned black should contain a 5 and/or 10 second option, as it now only contains the choice between 1 second and 30 Seconds, leaving a big gap.

affects: gnome-control-center (Ubuntu) → activity-log-manager (Ubuntu)
Changed in activity-log-manager (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low

I think for Trusty, given where we are in the release cycle, we should only try to unify the options in the combo box; currently they are slightly different ("Screen turns off" vs "1 second").

In the future we should try to get rid of the 'Brightness and Lock' panel completely.

I'm not in favour of adding more options there since this strays into the realms of excessive clutter. Seems like what we have is a good compromise.
