If I switch to a virtual console (Ctrl+Alt+F2) and then back (Ctrl+Alt+F1) I am confronted with the login screen again. I don't want or need this additional typing, how can I turn this off?

What desktop are you using, because it can make a difference here. If you don't know, or didn't select one, you're probably using Gnome with gdm as the display manager.

I'm using Cinnamon, as I stated in my question it is gdm asking me for a password
