So when i leave office, I place machine in lock (obviously)
Next morning when I arrive, I cannot unlock. There is not even a prompt/box/place to unlock.
I am not entirely sure this is even a screensaver/lock issue, smells more like a screen-reinitialise issue.
I have 3 screens.
When I leave work, after I placed into screensaver locked, I switch off all three screens physically at their power buttons.
When I return to office next morning, the screens will not re-initialise fully.
1 screen (random) is always blank
2 screens have the default background, bu it is not 100% on each screen. Sometimes it overlaps between two screens, sometimes there semes to be multipel on one screen, half to the next.
- Mouse is 100% active.
- There is no login prompt visible anywhere
I did just try and type in password, incase it is not just visible, but that did not work.
I can drop to console (ctrl+shift+f1) and do a command: sudo loginctl terminate-session <SESSION ID> which then restores all three displays, and allows me to login
I am happy to supply any debug info at the time of the issue, which can be derived via console. Just let me know what you need.
Display card: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107 [NVS 510] (rev a1) using the propriaty installed drivers (issues happens with those and the default installed drivers. I swapped to the propriety drivers after first few times this happened, to see if that helped. It did not)
