Hi. Sway is running here on the Raspberry Pi 4. However when I am absent from the keyboard for a while or switch the monitor to another desktop, I am unable to get back in. This occurs when the Pi is unused for a while. Hitting the escape button brings up a small screen saver image of a circle in the middle of the screen. I can still get to another virtual workspace, but am unable to find a key combination or sway desktop magic to let me back in. Any ideas on this problem?
DId you try just typing in your password on the ‘lock’ screen?
Yup sounds like the lockscreen (guess swaylock) indeed.
Just put in your password and it should work again.
If you don’t want a lock screen you could comment the swaylock line in the config. Do not remove only comment with an # in front of the line
Thanks all. Yes typing in the user password does unlock sway. It is unusual doing this on a blank screen but it works. Will look into the config file and see if I can manipulate the lock screen or turn it off.
