[Bug 1395547]


Okay, I found a great workaround for me: 
1. I made sure I removed light-locker, gnome-screensaver, xscreensaver, kscreensaver, etc..
2. installed xscreensaver
3. reboot

Standby/resume and screen unlocking now works perfectly. While xmodmap
is still broken, I don't care about that.

Bug description:
  Just upgraded to Xubuntu 14.10, had issues with fglrx (see
  with-fglrx), went back to radeon drivers. Now it looks to be OK,
  however after locking the screen using xflock4 and unlocking, I get
  these three processes using a lot of CPU (this is on 4-core Phenom II
  X4 N950):

    PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND

  Additional information:

  - Killing and restarting xfsettingsd and xfce4-volumed resolves the issue until next sleep cycle
  - When running only xfce4-volumed, but not xfsettingsd, the issue does not appear
  - This can be reproduced always. ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5650 video card
  - The CPU usage does not seem to go down after a while
  - If I got it correctly, it looks like some other processes are also going to high CPU usage after killing xfce4-volumed. I think I saw xfce4-xkb-plugin going to 95% CPU usage
  - The issue happens before unlock, i.e. locking then pressing a key to get a login dialog, then switching to vty1 and doing a top yields the above

  Not sure what else I should check / post that can be useful for
  troubleshooting, let me know.
