Black lock screen

Is there any way to disable the black screen with the clock and padlock icon on it?

What would you want in its place? The reason for that screen is to prevent accidental touches from doing things.... and it would happen in pockets a lot. 

Do you want to wake the phone and be right at the home screen? If you have change from pin to swipe, you can get close, but you still have to interact someway. So swipe to home screen is best it gets.

Open the Moto app, tap the 3 stars at the top right, tap on Display and turn it off.

 

You would get the stock android lock screen in its place and you would only be able to wake your phone by pressing the power button.

 

You would lose the ability to know that you have notifications because the Moto X doesn't have a notification LED. This is the main purpose of Moto Display.

Okay, thanks for your reply. Now, I need to know how to open the "Moto app". (Sorry to be such a bother!)
