Bug#887723: mate-screensaver: the screen stays darken and desktop not available anymore

Joël Krähemann-2
Package: mate-screensaver
Version: 1.18.2-1
Severity: serious
Justification: the desktop must be available

Dear Maintainer,

I have installed mate-desktop and its screensaver. The screen
stays darken after a while it was darken. Hitting my Logitech
USB wireless keyboard doesn't show up login screen.

Only way out is to restart lightdm:

`systemctl restart lightdm`

This possibily leads to data loss.

Best regards,
Joël

Can you try other input devices for un-blackening the screensaver?  
Mouse movement, other USB ticket, etc.?

Work-around for unlockable screensaver. CTRL+ALT+F2 (console tty), log  
in as same user and then killall mate-screenaver.

No feedback received so far, nor having seen this on other systems  
(except on rare occasions). This is definitely a sometime occurring  
bug, but this does not justify to have this bug with serious severity.
