[Bug 1083030] Re: Ubuntu >= 12.04 resumes from Suspend without password prompt


I've got the same problem with at least 13.04 and now with 13.10.

I've noticed, that the gnome-screensaver deamon wasn't running after a
fresh login. Once the deamon is running, locking after suspend is
working again.

I didn't figure out, why this deamon isn't running. However my simple
workaround: just add the gnome-screensaver to the session startup list

  Ubuntu >= 12.04 resumes from Suspend without password prompt

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  in Ubuntu 12.04 (running unity 2d if that means anything), I put my computer to sleep.
  Upon resuming, it did not ask for my password, leaving my workstation vulnerable to anyone who accidentally hit the keyboard to wake it up.

  I checked the settings, they said explicitly "Require my password when waking from suspend" was active.
  I unchecked this setting and checked it again, no improvement.

  $ cat /proc/version_signature 
  Ubuntu 3.2.0-33.52-generic 3.2.31

  There's a "Lock [ ON | OFF ]" button in the same dialog, which also has no effect on the desired feature whether on or off.
