Is there a way to disable the lock screen in Ubuntu Netbook Remix?

I don't want to enter my password every time I get back to my computer.

How about you go to the Screensaver preferences (right-click on desktop, etc) and uncheck the lock-screen option? (I think there is one there).

Go to the Ubuntu logo in the left hand upper corner.

Click Office > All Applications > Screensaver.

Uncheck lock screen when screensaver is active then click close.

It is a screensaver preference. While in the screensaver settings uncheck the "lock screen when screensaver is active" this may not disable the lock screen when you boot up though. Looking into that.
