Ubuntu – How to disable screensaver lock


I want that my monitor turns off when I am inactive for a while, but I do not want that I am prompted for a password when I revoke my pc. In Ubuntu 16.04 it was possible to disable the lock but still enable the screensaver as explained here.

In Ubuntu 18.04 I entered the following in terminal:


and disabled ubuntu-lock-on-suspend:

However, since I made this change, my monitor never suspends anymore. I tried restart but it didn't help.

Any ideas how I can disable lock but still enable suspend mode?

I just realized lock and suspend are two different things in Ubuntu 18.04.

One may disable the lock here: enter image description here

But still enable suspend here: enter image description here
