The behaviour I’m asking about is at the faintly-annoying end of the severity spectrum. It is not worth spending any time investigating. However I thought someone else might be aware of this issue and/or a way to eliminate it.
When logged in with a DE session active my system is configured to go to sleep after a period of inactivity. When it does this, the illuminated halo around the power button pulses slowly. Briefly pressing the power button wakes the system up and the lock screen is displayed. No surprises there.
When I unlock the system (with fingerprint or password) the
suspend|restart|shutdown dialog box is “sitting” there and needs to be dismissed.
I expect that dialog box to pop up when I press the power button except when waking from sleep.
Is there a simple config change I might make to prevent this from occurring? Keen to hear how others have dealt with this scenario. Thanks for reading.
