Summary: "Lock display before suspend" is either buggy or not
precise enough
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: sven.burmeister@xxxxxxx

In kpowersave's settings one can enable/disable: "Lock display before

"Before" either means "any time before...", or "right before suspending". If it
means any time before, it could lock the display at any time before suspend
might happen, which of course does not make sense.

However, currently the display is locked when starting the screensaver. If this
is intended behaviour the feature should state this, i.e. "Lock display when
starting screensaver, suspending going into stand-by."

Best solution would be to allow the user to distinguish between locking the
display when suspending and locking the display when the screensaver starts.

In powersave-mode the screensaver kicks in quite early, but having to unlock
the screen every time is annoying. Yet disabling the feature also disables the
locking when suspending, which is not really an option.
