Using the instructions in this thread I disabled the lock screen:
Disabling Lock Screen 18.04
…and the phone style slide-up lock screen is still enabled. It is not "locked". However, if I happen to be playing a game, that slide screen function completely locks up my computer. I can't get it back without a hard reboot. I would like a way to completely get rid of the phone style slide up requirement to return to my desktop. Just go from a blank screen (or screen saver) to the desktop when I move my mouse or press a key or anything to wake up the computer.
