I do not have any kind of password/pattern lock enabled in my rooted Samsung Galaxy Y mobile phone.

When I wake my phone up, by pressing either the power button or the middle button, I see this screen:

Swipe screen to unlock in Samsung devices

What I wish is that I do not get this screen, I directly go to the home screen of my device when I press the power/middle button. How can it be done?

P.S: I have a rooted phone.

Your phone do not need to be rooted. Go to Settings > Security > Screen lock. Then select None to disable the lock screen (which should be set to Swipe or something like that in your casesince you get the Swipe screen).

That gives the swipe screen – user221287 Oct 26 '12 at 3:50
The None option works on my Android device (and theorically on all ICS devices like mine). It is weird that it does not work in your case. – air-dex Oct 26 '12 at 13:18
