Desktop timeout screensaver needs the PW twice to open

Has anyone else got this issue?

Mint 19.2 on various machines.

After the screensaver kicks in, I enter the PW, the screen blanks then returns to the PW entry screen. Enter the PW again and it goes to the desktop.

More an irritation than a problem but if there is a fix I would like to hear it.

Thanks in advance,
