After a period of time my screen goes blank or becomes a login screen. How do I disable this (I do not have root access). I don't mind the timeout, but I don't want to have to login all the time.

I read a bunch of posts but was not able to extract an answer. (I tried)
This is controlled by your screensaver settings and doesn't require root, being set on a user-by-user basis. Simply run the screensaver control panel (It should be under Settings; if not, open a terminal and run xscreensaver-demo as a regular user.) and uncheck the option to lock the screen. If that doesn't help, let us know.
