Bug or not? Suspend issue

Postby slowman on Sun Aug 21, 2011 7:28 pm

I just installed 201108rc on both of my laptop. They all work pretty smooth.
When I woke up my machine from suspended mode, the system don't even ask the password. It might be a bug. I am not sure.

Not a 'bug'

You have to manually 'enable' the screensaver. And select the [lock-screen] feature.

It's a configurable feature. To configure:

  1. Start `gconf-editor` from terminal or Alt-F2.
  2. In the left-side navigation control, browse to /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock
  3. To see what you can change, select row items in the top-right pane. You'll get explanation of what it means in the lower-right pane.

If the box is checked next to /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock/suspend, it's a bug. If the box is not checked, check it, then try suspending.
