In 19.10 and before, when I closed the laptop lid, the computer would lock the screen and suspend. Now, it suspends, but when I (or anyone else) opens the lid, the session resumes without requiring a password. There used to be a setting under Power for specifying what to do when the laptop lid is closed. I couldn't find it since upgrading to 20.04. Where is this setting? I need to lockscreen and suspend when I close the lid.

  • Does it require password when you suspend using other methods?

    In my case when resuming from suspend it never asks for a password, regardless of how the computer was suspended. "Lock screen on Suspend" is checked in the settings.

Please go to Settings -> Privacy -> Screen Lock and enable item Lock Screen on Suspend - it works well.

  • yAnTar - Under Settings, there is no Screen Lock. There is "Displays", but no submenu for locking screen. Under Power, there is: Dim Screen When Inactive (not selected) Automatic Suspend (When on battery power) Power Button Behavior (Suspend)

  • pomsky - It does not require a password when I suspend using the taskbar's Power Off/Log Out->Suspend method either.
