The icon named "Display" is where the setting is. There
is nothing like using a name that did something totally
different in the old Gnome 2 to make things easy to
find :-).

It won't let you turn the screensaver totally off, but
you can at least disable the lock function.

You can hit it with a really big hammer : "yum remove gnome-
screensaver" -- and maybe after that do "yum install xscreensaver"

xscreensaver also has a box to uncheck if you don't want it to
lock and require your password.
