I recently switched from Gnome screensaver to Xscreensaver and I have been facing problems in making Xscreesaver lock my session when I suspend my system. Can anyone help me figure this out?

Do you mean Xscreensaver freezes your session or locks the computer? If its locking the computer, I think there is a setting for this. –  Seth Dec 13 '12 at 20:46
I mean I want Xscreensaver to lock my session when I do a system suspend, so that I can be able to enter my password on resume and get back to my work. –  kony king Dec 13 '12 at 20:51
Have you checked the settings? –  Seth Dec 13 '12 at 20:54
actually, there is no such setting provided by xscreensaver concerning this. –  kony king Dec 13 '12 at 20:57
