Description of problem:
When coming out of suspend mode, the screen flashes whatever was on the screen before it was suspended, then it locks. This is a security risk in case something sensitive was on the screen, and particularly if the laptop fell into the wrong hands while suspended.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shut the laptop for long enough to suspend.
2. Open the laptop.
3. Quick take a picture of it and see if there was anything juicy.
You see what was on the screen before suspend for a brief moment
You see the lock screen
