Deactivating password request after screen lock

I have an unusual request from a user that I support, who would like me to deactivate (or disable) the password request that occurs after the screen is locked in an X session. He runs KDE and when the session is inactive, it locks the screen (as normal). And when he returns he finds it annoying to be asked for his password in order to unlock the screen. After a short period of explaining why this was a security FEATURE of the system, he still insists on having me do this. I have googled for some time and have come up empty handed and was wondering if ANYONE on this list had ever done this and how.


Thanks in advance for any assistance
