Description Morgan Leijström 2021-02-03 01:20:23 CET
Description of problem: Anyone can see desktop briefly

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Live xfce to desktop
2. Mageia menu -> Log out button -> suspend button
3. Wake it up
4. See desktop a couple seconds. (on my old machine more than 3s first time...)
5. ...then desktop get covered by login

Can login screen be launced before suspend?
If not possible to fix at login, maybe can xfce minimize all windows before suspending?

Sidenote: the Login button is not translated. I don't know if it should be.
That word is probably understood in most port of the world anyway...

What about the specification of the machine? It is too slow that light locker opens itself too slowly?

Thinkpad T400: 2x2,2 MHz 64 bit 4G RAM, some for its time decent GPU, no problem with internet tv, video etc.

Comparison: Larger apps like Mageia Control Center is *much* quicker.

But i have come to think that it may not be the screen locker that is slow.
Maybe erroneoulsy old image data is shown, while the screen locker is invisibly up, like the problem at login where old graphic data are still shown a couple seconds at login; see https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24134#c35

Anyway, in this case too, it would work around that bug if screen locker was fully launched *before* entering sleep - i dont know if that is technically easily possible to achieve.

This problem of screen showing up before locker as principle is as old as from last millenia, i think it was never correctly implemented.  It is just that what i see here is worse than ever.
