pm-suspend does not lock screen

Bug Description

System: Xubuntu 20.04.3 (64bit)

When suspending my notebook by calling "/usr/sbin/pm-suspend", there is **no login dialog** after resuming. If I suspend using the graphical XFCE logout menu, the screen is locked properly.

I've checked on my other 18.04 machine: There, pm-suspend locks the screen as expected.

Is this something to be configured or a parameter?
Grateful for any hints :)

On the 18.04 machine I actually executed:
`xfce4-session-logout --suspend`

Now realizing this, I'm asking myself if this issue should be closed since "pm-suspend" isn't supposed to lock, because that's "xflock4" job, right? :|

Sorry for the noise.
Yet, I hope it may at least point others towards "xfce4-session-logout" when suspending by command :D
