xfce (Debian 9) - locks laptop screen after a while

Postby andy55 » 2017-08-07 06:57

Hi all,

I have been using Debian Stretch for a while (even before GA) and noticed something wired: when I don't touch the keyboard for a while the screen goes black but after a while even if I press any key it remaines as black. I can switch to the asci console a back to graphical environment (ALT+F1/7 keys) but I cannot unlock the black screen. The only option is to either reboot the laptop or kill the X server (with SYSRQ combination).
Screen saver is disabled.

Can anyone tell me what is wrong with it ?

THanks

Might be the xfce power manager settings that are blanking the screen. Can you adjust that to never blank the screen?

The theme is Adwaita Dark Xfce, I believe it came preinstalled in MX Linux.
