Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1025432
Screen is not locked even when Power button action set to hibernate
Last modified: 2013-10-31 13:33:29 EDT
Description of problem:
In Cinnamon 2.0.3 the screen is not locked if one chooses hibernate for the power button action regardless of the lock screen setting on wake.
I have in the power control panel "Power button action" = hibernate
In the screensaver and Lock Settings, I have "Require my password when waking from suspend" set to on, as confirmed by the gsettings below
gsettings get org.cinnamon.settings-daemon.plugins.power button-power
gsettings get org.cinnamon.settings-daemon.plugins.power lock-on-suspend
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Correctly Configure Power and lock settings as described above
2. Press Power
System hibernates, but the screen is not locked on resume.
System hibernates, and the screen is locked on resume
which is necesssary to allow cinnamon-settings-daemon to have control over what the power button does at all.
If the gsettings get org.cinnamon.settings-daemon.plugins.power button-power
is set to interactive, and I get a the dialog box asking to Hibernate, or suspended, or poweroff or logout, and I select Hibernate, the system, does lock the screen as expected.
Cinnamon on Fedora 17 which still used the gnome-settings, did the right thing. So it seems to be a 2.0.x problem
yum --nogpgcheck install http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/cinnamon-screensaver/2.0.3/1.fc19/i686/cinnamon-screensaver-2.0.3-1.fc19.i686.rpm
Brilliant! Thanks. Fastest Resolution ever. Works exactly right.
