Annoying problem with Fedora 22 - console and back to GNOME

Hi, I'm using F22 and I use the text consoles a lot. So, type Control-Alt-F2 (or F3, or F6) and let's go. But when I go back to GNOME (Control-Alt-F1), it asks me my password. It's annoying, so is there any way to turn it off? I took a look at the Settings app, but I didn't found it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance, Ricardo.

The default configuration has GDM on vt0, desktop on vt1 and consoles on vt2 onwards. Ctrl+Alt+f2 should return you to your desktop.

I work on terminal console a lot, but I use the terminal on GNOME which work perfect for me. Think that is better solution. Specially because when you press ctrl+alt+f3 or other you are suspending your GNOME session so when you can back you will need to login. Only way is to disable user login.

Do you really need the text consoles? There are perfectly good terminal emulators for X. If you really need the text consoles and all the switching, try disabling user login (auto login), or you could try different DE.

A workaround is to use the < alt> + < left arrow> several times till reaching Gnome. No login.

The setting is under Privacy → Screen Lock in Settings.
