Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.6.1-1
Severity: grave
Tags: a11y
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

Running Debian testing on Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme, xfce4 desktop

I wished to have power manager blank my monitor after 1 minute of inactivity if
running on battery. Power manager does successfully blank monitor, but
cannot unblank. Moving the mouse or pressing any keys does not unblank
the monitor. Only way to fix is to hold power button to force a

EDIT: A workaround is to use CTRL + ALT + F<2,3,4,etc> to switch to a
new tty temporarily. Then CTRL + ALT + F1 switches back to xfce, which
will display the unlock screen.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Allow XFCE4 Power Manager to manage display power
2. Set 'Blank after' to One minute.
3. Wait 1 minute. Display blanks, cannot unblank.

this is actually unrelated to xfce4-power-manager (and the severity is wrong).
It looks like a bad interaction between your graphics driver (likely Intel?)
and light-locker.

There are already too many bugs opened for this issue (#908329, #913062,
#870641 and maybe others) so I'm closing this one.

Sorry, I don't have a good solution for you at that point.
