Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 855896
Screensaver doesn't block screen if menu is open
Last modified: 2012-09-10 11:17:07 EDT
Description of problem:
If the Gnome main menu is clicked, the screenshot is not activated. When the menu is un-clicked, and enough time has passed, the screensaver is activated immediately after.
If the Gnome main menu is not clicked, the screensaver activates normally.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define the Gnome screensaver to start after X minutes
2. Click on the Gnome main menu in the panel and leave it showing
3. Wait X minutes, the screen saver will not activate
Screensaver is not activated.
Screensaver should activate regardless of what's happening on the screen.
There was a bug reported for Fedora 14 (#569027) that was closed. I felt it was more appropriate to open a new one for RHEL 6.3 to get it considered.
This particular issue is a subtly different manifestation of bug 710966.
Please see bug 710966 comment 16 for more details.
