Hi Mike.

The motherboard is the first one: https://www.ebuyer.com/1141623-asus-rog-strix-b450-f-gaming-ii-atx-motherboard-rog-strix-b450-f-gaming-ii.
And yes; that's the processor - https://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-Processor-Wraith-Stealth-Cooler/dp/B07B428V2L?th=1
I built up a PC to MP's specs using these components and was very pleased with the result.  The cooler is silent! but the flashing LEDs on the board are for boy-racers.

Keith, can you throw any light on this please? Mad Penguin seems to be otherwise preoccupied. I hope he's OK....

Linux Support / Re: Lite 3.8 Blank Screen After Opening Lid

I've just been trying Linux Lite. In the menu, the Settings - Power Manager tool has an option to disable locking the screen when blanking it. Evidently your version doesn't. Looking more closely, I see that the current version is 5.6 and you are using 3.8, so it seems that your problem was addressed. I also see that 3.8 is no longer supported — running an OS past the end-of-life is not generally a good idea and it also means that there are not many people who can help you, since they will have all moved on.

Thanks SeZo,

Under the Security tab, the 'Automatic lock the session:' is set to 'When the screensaver is activated'.  (The other option is 'When the screensaver is deactivated'.)
The 'Delay locking after the screensaver for' = 1 second.
The 'Lock screen when system of going for sleep' is unchecked.

I don't know where to find the screensaver settings.  There're not in Power Management or Display, or any of the other settings that I can find.

Not familiar with Lite, but I believe it uses XFCE, so you may have something similar to other users.

Have a look in Power Manager -> Security, see if Lock screen enabled when Screensaver is activated.

Also have a look at Screensaver settings, the lock might be initiated by that

Thanks.

I've tried the various options and nothing seems to change. The screen blanks after closing the lid (which I have no problem with) and, after some time, the 'Enter PW' comes up.  I can't see anything else to change.  The system does not seem to lock itself into one state, as the options I set seem to stay set.

Thanks for the link re numlock.  Unfortunately, I have already tried all these options, as well.  There is an option for numlock state in the BIOS which is set to 'off', and the 'Restore Num Lock State on Startup' has been set to both with the same result, that of the numlock being 'on' at 'Enter PW', at boot up or on opening the lid.  Turning 'numlock' off is easy, but continually frustrating - particularly, considering I know it shouldn't be the case.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

In 'Power Management', 'General' tab, 'Laptop Lid' section, 'When laptop lid is closed:' is on 'Switch off display' on both batt and plugged.  In the 'System' tab, 'System power saving' section, batt and plugged are 'Suspend', inactive: never.  Is this what you were referring to?
Yes; that's what I meant.  You might be able to change the behaviour using one of those controls.

Also, as aside, the numlock keeps turning on.  How do I get it to stay off on boot up?
You might find an option in the BIOS to toggle the auto numlock.  If not then you could try using a Fn key command.  I found the following from https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/other-17/disable-numlock-on-startup-in-linux-lite/
Most laptops have a Fn key you can press in conjunction with other keys to turn off the NumLock feature. But the precise way to disable NumLock varies depending on your laptop model. The Number Lock indicator will light up when the NumLock is enabled and will be unlit whenever the NumLock is disabled. Here are the most common keyboard shortcuts to enable/disable NumLock:

Fn + F11 (Acer, Toshiba, Samsung)
Shift + Num Lock
Fn + Num Lock (Sony, Gateway)
Fn + F11 + Scroll lock
Fn + F8 (HP)
Ctrl + F11
Fn + Shift + Num Lock
Fn + F4 (Dell)
Fn + Nmlk (Lenovo, ASUS)

After pressing the keyboard shortcuts to enable the NumLock, press the shortcuts again and it will disable NumLock."


Fn+F11 works on my Lenovo Thinkpad as well as Fn + Nmlk

Have you tried altering the power settings so that it doesn't go into hibernate or sleep  mode when you close the lid?
