Xfce4 Login Screen of Death

I'm on Linux Mint 20 Xfce. Every time I let my computer suspend, I'm met with this Login Screen of Death, where I no matter what I do I cannot type in the password box. Does anyone have a fix for this? https://youtu.be/DT1iOfgeiok

Re: Xfce4 Login Screen of Death

Hello and welcome to the forum

Quoting our mod from a recent (unsolved) thread:

To be honest, suspend isn't really an Xfce function - it is something that is handled by the kernel and distro of your choice. Yes, Xfce can kick off the process, but the whole suspend/resume cycle is really outside the scope of Xfce.

To help you narrow down the issue, you should review your system logs. On a systemd based system, that would be the journal. For example, and to keep the logs entries minimal, on a fresh boot and login, suspend/resume the computer and then run:

sudo journalctl -b 0 --no-pager > /tmp/journal.log

...and review the /tmp/journal.log file to look for errors or delays (note the timestamp entries for the suspend start and suspend exit actions - especially shortly after the suspend exit).
