[SOLVED] Shutdown, Restart & Blank Display result in Log out [XFCE]

Hi all,

I have some weird log out behavior on my machine.

When I have both the settings below enabled and I press the power-button I get a prompted, but whatever I select: 'restart, shutdown or suspend' I only get logged out.
When I disable 'Prompt on logout' I immediately get logged out whatever I select under 'Settings > When Power button is pressed ' When I go through Whisker menu I get the same behavior.

Settings > Session & Startup > General > Prompt on logout = Enabled
Settings > Power Management > General > When Power button is pressed = Ask

Even 'Settings > Power management > Display > Blank screen after X minutes' logs me out. I have it set to 1 minute on battery and every time I have to log in again.

Settings > Power management > System > Security > Lock screen when computer is going to sleep = Disabled.

I'm not sure what logs I should provide to troubleshoot this?

Thanks in advance!

You probably don't have xfce4-power-manager properly configured. Take a run of the power manager and make general adjustments.

I don't understand Polish and your menu looks a bit different than mine, so I took some screenshots too. Like I said in the first post, changing these options doesn't change anything.

loginctl session-status

Even 'Settings > Power management > Display > Blank screen after X minutes' logs me out. I have it set to 1 minute on battery and every time I have to log in again.

Are you genuinly locked out or is this just a screen locker (do open windows close/running processes terminate when you're "logged out" this way)?

You must select an action for all four items.

Yes, I'm actually fully logged out. When I log back in it's like I booted from a complete powered off state.

It does not matter what I select there, result is always a log out.

Check the system journal, I suspect that the session process (xfce4-session) crashes on those attempts (and that apparently includes DPMS, maybe the DPMS is the ultimate trigger)
It might also be the xorg server, so check the Xorg.0.log.old as well, https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xorg#General

Thanks for the response!

I was on a vacation so didn't have time to look at it.
Here's the content of the last minute in the system journal, I can't really figure out what's happening.: https://pastebin.com/raw/EQXwQZ27

There's a decade old FreeBSD bug w/ that pattern, https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_ … &id=170825
Regardless of the fact that xfce should™ be more robust here, did you do anything wrt https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xfce#Session ?
Do you have rw permissions on ~/.cache/sessions and ~/.cache/sessions/* ?

Re: [SOLVED] Shutdown, Restart & Blank Display result in Log out [XFCE]

No I didn't change anything (or not intentionally).

I made a CloneZilla backup and tried a clean install with the latest archinstall (2.5.0) including xfce4, I still have the same problem so maybe it's a bug in archinstall?
On Manjaro and Xubuntu I didn't have this problem, switching is not an option though... I love vanilla Arch.

[denisuu@BLOOGLET .cache]$ ls -lh  ~/.cache/sessions
-rw-r--r-- 1 denisuu denisuu 0 Jun 21 21:25 /home/denisuu/.cache/sessions

Edit: I restored the CloneZilla, deleted  ~/.cache and it's working now!

Thanks for the help guys, I appreciate it! ♥
