This causes the "minimize all windows (show desktop)" case as in the OP, even with the addition of @MotiejusJakštys 's line

Surprising that there are no good apt-get based answers for this, considering how prominently it is listed on each server

Hi Rod, this happens for me as well. One thing Ive noticed is that it happens only with Battery mode, not AC, not sure if that helps

comment rEFInd breaks standby mode on MacBook Air 5.2
I have this problem as well, Linux mint 15 instead of Ubuntu, and havent really tinkered with it tho, so doubt that has anything to do with it.

comment How to run scripts on start up?
This is awesome. So far this seems better than rc.local since the system seems more setup by this point (PATH, etc). It is odd that it is so hard to call something after system startup..

comment Can Mouse Wheel Scrolling be enabled in Byobu
@DustinKirkland sorry to revive this old thread, but I am still not able to scroll with the mouse.. I have disabled Scroll on Keystroke, and pressing alt-pageup is not doing anything.. I am testing this on mints Mate terminal (which should be reasonably similar to gnome terminal from GTK2)
