Last modified: 2012-08-07 14:15:57 EDT
Description of problem:
when computer is idle screen blacks out and locks. When trying to unlock I enter password once and screen goes dark again and password screen shows up again enter password this time and it unlocks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
only reproducible if it locks automatically not if you manually lock the screen.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Let the computer be idle for some time.
3.Now try to unlock.
Password screen appears twice.
Entering password once should unlock it.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Now also happens on my Fedora 14.

A nuisance, but perhaps not enough to warrant being assigned high severity?
Additionally, upon entering the session again (after the second attempt), the keyboard does not work. After a mouse click everything works as normal again.
After applying the latest updates, the problem has gone for me.
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
