Delete/rename kdesktop_lock.As a side effect you wont be able to
shutdown/suspend/hibernate using tde menu.

There should be way to disable this gracefully but there is not.

P.S. The wakeup is not the only thing where autolocking is undesirable.
kdesktop_lock interferes with multiple xorg sessions/screens.
