It's not difficult, though it should probably be made easier in the
future. The power preferences control this - but the options are not
available in the preferences dialog.

Run the Configuration editor (it's gconf-editor if you run it from a
shell). Go to apps -> gnome-power-manager. There are four related
options there that control this: lock_on_blank_screen,
lock_on_hibernate, lock_on_suspend and lock_use_screensaver_settings.

And for some reason only the developers know, the
lock_use_screensaver_settings is unset by default. What I did was just
unset the other three, but I guess that setting
lock_use_screensaver_settings to true would work for you too. Unless
there was a good reason this was left unset of course.
