Screenlock on tablet rotate

Postby marc1uk » Sat Mar 23, 2013 2:59 pm

A few months ago I finally got round to attacking tablet rotation on my Fujitsu T1010 in LMDE XFCE. It took over a week to figure out, mainly because the fujitsu tablet I have is one of those awkward models that isn't a wacom and doesn't work with most of the scripts available.
Eventually though, I got it all sorted and everything worked like a charm.
...
Until recently.
Now, when I swivel the screen and lay it into tablet mode, I'm logged out. All my applications close, including cellwriter, and since I don't have access to the keyboard, I can't enter my password. So I switch back to laptop mode, type in my password, and log in. Then i swivel the screen back round... and get locked out again. :|

I have checked my rotation scripts and they're working fine, and don't log me out when I run them. I've set my laptop up so that it does nothing when I close the lid, if that's relevant, but I'd rather not have to remove my user password for obvious security reasons.

Does anyone have any clues to why this might be happening or how to stop it?
Thanks

Bump. Still happening. If anyone can help me make sense of the logs I can do a more specific search, but I'm clueless as to how to decrypt what lines relate to the point at which I'm logged out and what errors might be happening to cause it.
