For a few days now, every time my computer is inactive and blanks out, I come back unable to do anything and forced to manually turn my computer off and on. It is unbearable, given when I take breaks I can’t even use my computer properly afterwards. I’d like some help, if possible.
# Lock the system
# lock with a picture:
#bindsym $mod+l exec i3lock -i ~/.config/i3/i3-lock-screen.png -p default win -t
# lock by blurring the screen:
bindsym $mod+l exec ~/.config/i3/scripts/blur-lock
# set powersavings for display:
exec --no-startup-id xset s 480 dpms 600 600 600
is all we set there and blur-lock do only lock theb screen not powering it off…
Not sure what if you system may go to sleep somehow?
If this happens can you switch TTY? Ctrl+Alt+F1 till F7 ?
you can also go first to comment the xset line in the config and try the disable command manually… And in case realy try if TTY is responding… so you may can switch to F4 and back to F7 to get your x-session back…
