When I want to unlock my screen in a Gnome 3 session, I have to use my mouse to "drag up" the screen and uncover the password input. I would prefer to not use the mouse for that action since I am using a Notebook and that kind of gesture is really annoying.

And after some more trying, ESC and ENTER both work fine, the former also allowing to "cancel" the unlock.
