Powering up from suspend reveals my Desktop before showing lock screen

Post by console65 » Thu May 23, 2019 6:19 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm running MATE on my laptop and when I bring it back up from Suspend, my desktop with whatever I had open before powering down shows for half a second before bringing up my lock screen.

Any way to fix this?

Try another screensaver. Although it's mostly due to limitations of the X window system.

Nope. Didn't work.

Ughhh. Am I going to have to make sure to close my windows or just move to a different workspace before putting my laptop to sleep??

EDIT: I didn't have this problem with Cinnamon but I moved over to MATE because it was less laggy.

I think you misunderstood, I meant you should try a different screensaver/lock screen application. The default on MATE is mate-screensaver and what you describe is a known issue with that one.
