That isn't a solution: that's duct-taping a problem that needs to be addressed and fixed as a critical issue.randomguy wrote: ↑Sun Apr 28, 2019 2:05 amLOL. You're supposed to search the site and look for similar issues.
This isn't a new issue, I reported a similar more than a year ago (viewtopic.php?t=261301) and posted a workaround for this issue in viewtopic.php?f=206&t=282743&p=1597568#p1597568 as have others.
I run XScreenSaver and set it to lock after 5min with Power Management enabled. In Startup Applications I added X-Screensaver. Done.
Just like the "solution" to the sluggishness of the Nemo file manager is to install and use Thunar instead. (An issue that has existed since 2015, and only applies to Nemo and Caja, both of which originated as Mint projects and have yet to be resolved.) GNOME Files, Dolphin, Thunar, SpaceFM, and the others do not suffer from this flaw. It looks like it won't be fixed any time soon, considering the pattern of bugs in the Mint project that are years old without being addressed as serious issues.
Most "recent" revival of such an outstanding issue with an integral part of any desktop operating system.
