Description Vinzenz Feenstra [evilissimo] 2014-12-08 09:48:13 UTC
RFE: Do not lock screen on spice disconnect.

When a SPICE session is disconnected then reconnected, the VM's 'screen' is locked. Some users are looking for a per VM option to not lock the screen on spice session exit. The VMs are Windows XP (32bit)SP2/SP3.  Later they will include Windows 7 (32 and 64bit) as well.
Users have some VMs that are intended to be shared between multiple people and permanently logged in as a low privileged user. 

Functional requirements:

Provide an option to control spice session behaviour on session disconnect. Currently on exit of spice session it locks the VM screen.

There will be an option to tell spice not to lock screen on disconnect.
