Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have just found a answer to my question "How can I hibernate/suspend from the command line and do so at a specific time and a relative time?".

The thing though is that on many occasions the resume is back with an unlocked screen!

It's not always, but most of the time. Why & how can I make sure it locks?

Just to clarify, are you sure that the computer is suspended, or could it have just switched off the display? I think ubuntu does the latter by default after a certain time (maybe 10 minutes?), you can see the setting (in 12.04) from System settings > Brightness and Lock. –  taneli Nov 27 '12 at 9:25
    
I don't think so. It happened a number of times. moreover, I recall once I closed the lid after it suspended & the lights started blinking (a sign of suspend). I'll consider your answer & check it next time –  user10853 Nov 27 '12 at 18:38

Well, I haven't faced this problem since I posted here. I guess it was just my mistake.

The screen does lock; I might have made a mistake like "taneli" said above!
