My system requires a restart when its screen gets off. Once I've left my system it locks after 2 minutes and the display goes off but when I press any button or mouse clicks it never turn on, It turns on only when I restart by holding the power button.

I'm currently using 18.04.2.

  • What is your monitor? Is it a laptop or external TV? – PRATAP Oct 24 '18 at 6:56

This issue is resolved, when I installed the extension Unblack-screen-saver. Currently I am not facing any issues in Ubuntu 18.04

  • Your question says you are using 16.04 and don't want to upgrade. Your answer 9 months later says you are using 18.04 and an extension to solve problem. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Jul 13 at 21:50
  • Yes, I upgaraded the my machine, so I decided to give 18 a try. – dayDreamer Jul 24 at 6:07
