I have recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 and set up an account with a password. I configured the computer to ask for a password after waking up from a sleep however, I am still brought back to desktop without a lockscreen.

Computer specs: Lenovo IdeaPad Y580:

  • Intel Core i7-3630QM (2.4GHz with Turbo up to 3.4)
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M and Intel HD4000 (Optimus)

I had the same problem after upgrading to 14.04 LTS.

I found the setting here: Settings Manager -> Power Manager -> Extended -> check box for "Lock screen when going for suspend/hibernate".

Just in case this is still an issue for anyone.

    Where is this settings manager or which package is it in? I tried the Compiz Settings Manager but could not find that setting you mention. Nov 8, 2014 at 18:12

    1. Yes I have. 2. You should put this in a comment rather than an answer.
