    Default Screensaver freezes monitor

    Hi there,

    After updating 11.2 to 11.4 (it went well) I have discovered small problem.
    I have screensaver which starts after few minutes
    but then
    when I click mouse or hit keyboard my monitor freezes and I can't do anything. All programs work in background but I'm not able to do anything.
    All I can do is to hard reset or power off on the switch.

    Can you help to solve this mystery??

    No graphic card, just onboard graphic.
    I did not install any drivers, nor have one.
    What else do you need to know?
    I discovered as well that sometimes there are problems with Kwin.
