Hi all,

 

I've noticed that my lock screen unlocks by itself sometimes. For example if I leave my laptop locked for a few hour it is often unlocked when I return to it.

 

I do not use autologin.

 

I'm the only person who knows my password.

 

Any suggestion how can I fix that?

Or at least where to look for hints/logs?

 

Thanks

Can't say I've ever seen this. Anyone else able to reproduce this? Going to start locking my PCs on the regular when I walk away to see if they stay locked when I come back, but the few times I've had to do this at work I've never had an issue.

Hi all,

Do you have your system set to manually lock after a certain time or are you manually locking it when you leave your PC? 

 

I'll attempt to set my system up to replicate this, just let me know - thank you!

I believe this issue is actually related to this crash that is causing most of our other headaches in this release: http://forums.bodhil...oksha-segfault/

Basically popups are causing the desktop to dump and the lock screen is basically a giant popup. The desktop crashes, which causes an auto restart, which removes the lock screen.

oblio2231 -  I manually lock my screen.

 

Jeff - thanks for pointing this out  :rolleyes:  I've disabled window geometry. Will report back here if the problem is solved.
