Bug Description

Anytime my screen gets blanked, it is also locked.
Every time it is locked and is blanked, I lose the session to a blank screen after login. I have found nothing that allows me to resume from this condition.

This occurs when the screen is blanked by any means and is also locked at the same time.

If I lock the screen manually and the screen is not blanked. I can log back in just fine.

If I turn off Light Locker and blank the screen. I can resume just fine.
If I turn off Light Locker and suspend. I can resume just fine.

If I manually lock the screen and close the lid on my laptop, it automatically instantly suspends and I am messed up.

If Light Locker is off and I close the lid it does not suspend. I have all of the Power settings to do nothing with the lid close.

If I set Light Locker - Blank screen - never, Switch off display - never, Lock on suspend - Off. Then I can close the lid without consequence, provide I did not lock the screen.

But, if I update, or something else I am not aware of, the Light Locker settings will change to something I have never set it at. And if I close the lid, unaware of these changes, I am messed up.

For me this means that Light Locker will remain turned off until this is fixed.

Did you close the laptop lid when suspending? We're seeing a bug in xfce4-power-manager that sounds very much like what you describe, but it only happens when the laptop is suspended by closing the lid.

Also: does normal/manual locking also not work for you?

Yes, I closed the lid. The only time my computer will suspend when Light
Locker is off, is after a specified time of inactivity and only when on
battery. Or when on battery and battery level reaches a certain percent.
No other suspend options are used.

But if I have LL on and I lock the screen, then immediately when closing
the lid, the computer suspends. And frequently when this occurs, the
screen is still blank after login.

Manual locking does work. That is the only way I ever lock my computer
in general. If it worked properly I would also have it lock on wake up
after suspend.

But that is the only two ways that I ever use locking.

Hope this helps.

Jimmie
