I have such a dilemma, after locking the screen, the password window does not appear the first time, the screensaver blocks this attempt again and again. It doesn’t matter what I use to wake up the computer, mouse or keyboard. It gets dark again, the password entry window disappears.

Hi and welcome to the purple side :enos_flag:.

What is your desktop environment? XFCE, KDE, GNOME, … etc

XFCE, dm sddm

Sounds like this issue.
