Comment 4 for bug 938076

Ubuntu has always let the user disable the automatic screen lock without having an impact on locking when using suspend. When this stopped being the case, we had a lot of complaints which led to different patches being attempted. It seems there are a few different use cases:

1- User wants password to login, wants the screen to lock automatically at periods of inactivity, and wants screen to lock on suspend.

2- User wants a password to login, but doesn't want screen to lock automatically because typing in a password multiple times a day is annoying, but if suspending the laptop, wants the screen to lock as the laptop may be travelling.

3- User uses autologin, doesn't want the screen to lock, doesn't want the screen to lock on suspend.

4- User uses crypto disk with password on boot, uses autologin, wants the screen to lock automatically, wants the laptop to lock on suspend.

5- User uses crypto disk with password on boot, uses autologin, doesn't want the screen to lock automatically, wants the laptop to lock on suspend.

Clearly grouping all of these scenarios into upstream's single "lock-enabled" setting isn't enough.
