I’ve got a Debian Stretch/KDE machine set up to run a CNC router. I'd like to set things up so that the display goes to sleep if the machine is left alone for a bit, but without requiring a password on wake. There seems to be no way to disable the
Require password after locking setting, despite the Help alluding to a checkbox.
I just want the monitor to sleep to save energy (and not excessively wear the display), but I don’t want it to require a password on wake. Is that possible?
EDIT: It seems the monitor doesn’t actually sleep, it just leaves a lock screen up. Is sleeping not a part of KDE? Another post I found suggested I had to write a script to sleep the monitor after locking happened. I’m trying to avoid locking and just have sleep.
