Lightdm and VMware WS14Pro

So for a while I was having problems with my VMs getting locked up whenever the screensaver / screen-lock would activate. I found the only solution to prevent this was to install Xscreensaver and run xsvreensaver-demo to setup the daemon and replace LightDM or LightLocker. I don't mind using Xscreensaver but would like to better understand why the default screen lock program would bork Vmware Workstation. Anyone have any details?
