Xfce screen lock: Not staying locked
Hello all,

I'm having some trouble with my screenlock function in Xfce.
Basically when i hit Ctrl+Alt+Del the screen fades and goes into Lock mode... but it only stays that way for like 3-5 seconds.
The screen then re-appears and you can see what is on my desktop.

If you move the mouse or hit a key, the Unlock window appears, and you have to type in the password to unlock it.
So, technically it 'Locks', but what good does it do if it still allows the screen to be seen?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Is that key combination mapped to 'lock screen' in the first place?

Display manager?

What screensaver or locker utility you use?
