What do you call normal way ? Can’t you open it via Settings Manager ?
There are several possibilities :
in Power Manager there is a tab “Security”, where you can check “Lock screen when system is going to sleep”
You can also play with screensaver settings
The last solution is to edit /etc/systemd/logind.conf and choose what you need :
HandleLidSwitch=lock – It will get locked when lid closed.
HandleLidSwitch=ignore – It won’t do anything.
HandleLidSwitch=poweroff – It will shut down your system
HandleLidSwitch=hibernate – It will hibernate
Then sudo systemctl restart systemd-logind.service
I use Manjaro-settings-manager but there isn’t any option like that referring to power management
I open Xfce4-power-manager via Dmenu but right now it’s not opening
Its opening via the terminal only after
I have set the option to suspend while on battery or when on power
And the behaviour is inconsistent
I mean sometime it suspends and sometime it does not
sometime it locks the screen and sometime it does not
I was just wondering why I am seeing these behaviour
