In the Light Locker Settings I just have "Enable light-locker" turned
off and then set the Screensaver settings to what I want, works

I've never really fathomed out why people want to lock screens and/or
have pretty pictures when they're away.  Just turn the screen off
after a few minutes idle so it doesn't burn or waste power.
