"This session is locked" have to REISUB every time the screen falls asleep

Post by winxpwasgreat » Tue May 22, 2018 9:25 pm

As per title, when I leave the screen for some mimutes it falls asleep.
When I move the mouse the login box appears but if I enter my password I get
"THIS SESSION IS LOCKED"
and have to reboot.

Why this happens and how to fix?

In Power Manager why don't you change the setting so it doesn't fall asleep? Problem solved.

Linux is often about experimenting and adapting the system to one's own needs, no 'one glove fits all' as in Windows.

Tried and doesn't work.
Screen still falls asleep after some time.
