There seems to be a problem with the locking screen feature in xfce when doing the suspend and/or hibernate in the Logout dialog.
Only works with the key action (Fn + Suspend).
I opened a bug:
If it is an upstream problem, like the packager said, how can this little annoiance be resolved.
Thanks in advance.
If you enter this command in a terminal, will it lock? If not, install xscreensaver and try again. (If that doesn't help, I'm out of ideas.)
$ xscreensaver-command -lock

Yes xscreensaver locks the screen and pm-utils works very well.
I believe that the problem is that the Logout dialog when I select Suspend or Hibernate, not locking the screen before doing the actions.
Or it not honours the setting in the Xfce Power Manager Preferences: Lock the screen when going for suspend/hibernate.
Any chance you've since found a solution for this?
I'm not using Archlinux anymore.
I am also facing this issue. But this is such a old thread. Last post was more than 4 years ago.
So why did you necrobump it? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fo … Bumping.27
