As the title says, I am trying to lock screen with "SUPER + L", however, it's shutting down my machine.

It used to work before, but lately, I have started using an external monitor with my laptop(HDMI cable), and it has started happening since then.

Any thoughts?



Not sure about SUPER+L but you can try it. In my case it's works with another custom Shortcut:

  • Go to Settings (Type settings in app menu search box)
  • Go to in Settings -> Device -> Keyboard (or type keyboard in settings search)
  • Scroll down all Keyboard Shortcuts and click "+" (add)
  • In the new modal window in Name field type for example - Shutdown, In field Command type shutdown -h now, click Set Shortcut... and type SUPER+L or another Shortcut.
