Locking screen when lid is closed (Dapper)

When I installed Dapper it did lock the screen on lid close, and I 
didn't want that. I hunted through the acpi scripts and eventually found 
a script for screen blanking that also had the lock command in it (dont 
know why). I dont know the exact script off the top of my head, but I 
will try to remember to look it up. If I forget and you don't get an 
answer before that from the list just drop me an email off list and I'm 
sure I can help you out.
