Comment 0 for bug 1783637

After upgrading to 18.04, on xfce4 with Display Power Management (xfce4-power-manager) enabled, and any of the three sliders set to non-zero, then when the time limit is hit after inactivity the screen goes black with a cursor flashing. Two Xorg logs are created when this happens (see attached). Ctrl-Alt-F# will switch to other ttys at this point, but only briefly before switching back to the one that is black with a single flashing cursor.

(I would expect things to happen as in 17.10, namely that the displays blank/switch off as selected, and then when further input is given they unblank/switch on.)
