Description of problem:

While it is possible to have the screen locked after a certain time or upon screen closing (through screen settings in Gnome 3 system settings), it doesn't the same option is not available (in Power settings, for example) for suspend/resume operations (maybe this option is hidden somewhere in gconf or dconf settings?).

Not having this option may result in a security problem.

This bug affects me too. As I recall, in Gnome 2 one had to set the screensaver option to lock the screen when the computer was idle. Regardless, however this should work in Gnome 3 with gnome-shell, I would also like it to work.

Hmmm, my laptop's screen locks during suspend/resume operations fine (and has for a while now). This bug might be only affecting some folks.
Comment 3 mlaverdiere 2011-04-21 07:18:05 EDT
I've tested it on 2 different laptops, with quite different specs (Dell Inspiron 1440 and Dell Studio 1458), on F15 freshly updated, and in both cases, I get no lock (luck!) upon suspend/resume...  On the other hand, "lock process" works fine either manualy, or upon automatic screen extinction.

Is there a particular setting to check somewhere?
