Screensaver lock

Just installed 14.04 on my netbook (to be used as media center) and it reminded me something trivial but IMO irritating: after 5 min the screensaver appears (not every one likes it, but okay) and the screen gets locked, while I imagine most people are using Ubuntu MATE at home and would probably disable this option to lock the laptop only when they have to.
Would it be an idea (if technically possible) to stop enabling the screen lock by default in future releases?


I also don't like the screen lock/blanking features of Ubuntu, I wrote a small guide which covers all the bases:

I know that it is still installed and set by default, new users to Ubuntu based systems can at least; disable all the screen locking/blanking features. :smiley:
