Bug Description

"Take a Break" is great app for developers like us. But I've some issues with Auto Login the PC with this App running even I locked the PC and went out for coffee :).

While I'm working on PC, this app is a great tool. Is there any configuration I can set to make the system being locked?

Hi sujit,
Thanks for taking time to send the report! I will start refreshing Take a Break in a few weeks, so this is the right moment :)
I am not sure however I understand correctly what you mean, do you want takeabreak to lock the PC (more then just lock the screen) , or just *not* to lock it?

Hi Jacob,
Thanks for your reply. I want takeabreak to lock the PC and prompt for login after the break time is over. Currently, as the break time is over, the system automatically logged in and desktop is shown up. This is more vulnerable to data if I'm away from the system.

I hope you've caught the problem I'm facing. :)

I've had the same issues - finally figured it out.

I think it is a problem with gnome-screensaver-command unlocking without asking for a password.
I've commented out that code in takeabreak_run. I'll see how it works now.

Side question - Jacob, are you interested in any updates to takeabreak - I've added a sleep button to my copy, to delay the break at critical time. Let me know - I'll send you the code, maybe you can incorporate it.
