Hey everyone I have a weird problem. I turned on the option to lock screen when the screen saver comes on. I put the lock icon near my clock so I can click it and click on lock screen when I'm at school and want to be secure. The problem is the other day out of the blue now whenever I go into standby and come back, the screen saver is on and the screen is locked. I didn't turn that option on and I have no idea how to turn it off. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Go to System Preferences -> Security
I don't think you can select to do just screen saver I think it automatically does both

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System
