Howto prevent ubuntu locking the screen when closing the laptop lid.

Thanks to jrib in irc://freenode.net/#ubuntu for this one.

<ul><li>Run gconf-editor (with alt+F2)</li>
<li>Go to or search for /desktop/gnome/lockdown</li>
<li>Tick disable_lock_screen</li>
<li>Restart gnome (ctrl+alt+backspace - after saving your documents it’s a bit brutal!)</li>
</ul>
