Screen is not locking OR shutting off according to set timers

Post by kentchristopher » Tue May 22, 2018 12:38 am

I've left my laptop unattended for well past the set timer limits, and every time I come back to it the screen is on and unlocked, as if the energy saving and screen lock settings have no effect. Anyone know what this might be? Kernel issue maybe?
