Description Misha Ramendik 2017-11-25 01:15:47 UTC
Description of problem:

On Fedora 27 (also Fedora 26) I use KDE. The desktop manager is KDM. In Energy Saving settings, the screen is set to turn off after 10 minutes.

Normally the screen does turn off after 10 minutes and the ystsem auto-locks after a few minutes too.

But sometimes I need to ensure the system is locked so I press the ley combination for it (default Ctrl+Alt+L). Th esytsem does lock. But then the screen is never turned off.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: always apparently

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure KDE is the desktop environment and KDM is the desktop manager. Make sure the screen is set to turn off after 10 minutes in Energy Saving settings.
2. Press the keyboard shortcut to lock the screen (by default, Ctrl+Alt+L)
3. Wait (without touching any part of the machine). 

Actual results:

The screen does not turn off

Expected results:

The screen turns of after the configured number of minutes.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30  Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version' of '27'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 2 Ben Cotton 2018-11-30 19:39:27 UTC
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
