Description Jason Wilson 2016-01-04 21:49:11 EST
Description of problem:
After doing a suspend/resume on Thinkpad Edge E440 unable to unlock screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Happens everytime after a suspend/resume.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend machine (press power button)
2. Resume machine (power button again)
3. Enter password at prompt

Actual results:
No response - just hangs. Does not give an error, just 'spins', then timeouts and goes back to blank screen.

Expected results:
Desktop to unlock

Additional info:
My opening a different virtual console, doing a 'killall -u USER ; killall gdm' it works again (but obviously losing all running applications).
NOTE: Am using auto-login account - not sure if contributes
Nothing obvious in journalctl while trying to unlock (no gnome related errors I could find).
Comment 1 Jason Wilson 2016-01-04 23:03:55 EST
Disable auto-login and now works.
Also - this used to work until an update about a month ago, but not sure exactly when (as don't actually suspend/resume all that often).

My mom is running into a similar issue quite often in F23.  I have her setup with auto-login and when she resumes the laptop, she sees the desktop and the mouse moves around, but nothing can be clicked or typed.  Nothing in the journal.  Doing a kill -HUP on gnome-shell fixes it, but there's no way I'm going to try to explain that to her...

I think it started happening when I upgraded her laptop to F23 just before Christmas.
