How can I turn off the password on the Ubuntu lock screen

cn flag

I'm running Ubuntu on a VM (host is Windows). I've got Ubuntu to autologin, and never autolock the screen. This is secure because I rely on the Windows host for physical security.

However, when my Windows host locks, the Ubuntu VM locks as well, and forces me to enter my password. I have a long password because I want it only for ssh, and it's disruptive to have to key it in every time I come back to my VM.

How can I tell Ubuntu not to lock the screen, even when the host locks?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
