When I lock my laptop, if chrome or other apps have a notification it will wake the screen. How can I disable that while still keeping it locked and open?


Assuming you are using Ubuntu 18.04 and up, or some other version of Ubuntu with the GNOME 3 desktop, you can search for Settings -> Notifications and turn off Lock Screen Notifications.

    This doesn't really solve the problem. There should be a way to have lock screen notifications without waking the screen (like on Android - iOS is very bad in this aspect - Gnome Shell seems to have copied their bad design). – Teoh Han Hui Dec 24 '19 at 15:26
