Now a configuration editor will open, go to the gnome-power-manager, then lock on the left hand toolbar. After this, un-check the boxes that say "hibernate and suspend", then exit out. Now, go to look at your screen saver preferences and make sure it isn't set to lock when your computer hibernates.
