Screenlock without Suspend

I am trying to set up Bodhi 4.5 so that my laptop goes to a blank screen after a few minutes of non use, requiring a password to re open the screen, BUT without suspending the laptop. I have ongoing services I wish to continue while unattended.

Is there a Custom Screenlock Command that can be set in Screen Lock Settings to "Lock on Blank screen"?

Give a try the settings under Setting panel. There you can find the locking screen as follows on the picture

Anyway before this, I can recommend the turning off the suspending under Blanking setup if checked.

Many thanks!

I had found the setting to turn off suspend when blanking, but not the "Timer" tab in the screenlock settings. Solved!


blank display, screen locks, suspend
