    Default Screen-saver logs me out intermittently


    Hi.

    I'm running OpenSuSE 11.1 with KDE 4.1.3 and find that sometimes when I
    move the mouse to resume work after the screensaver has started, I get
    logged out and all my applications are shut down. This happens about 1
    time in 10.

    Previously, I was running 11.0 with KDE 4.1.2 and had no issues at
    all.

    My Graphics card is an Intel 965GM. The following is an extract from
    from /var/log/messages, and includes the line,

    With regard to the message,
    kernel: [drm:i915_getparam] *ERROR* Unknown parameter 5

    I found a thread which claims that:

    this message is emitted if you're using
    xf86-video-intel >= 2.5 on a kernel < 2.6.28, because the driver is
    poking for GEM support; the message is harmless, and can be safely
    ignored

    I'm using the standard released kernel 2.6.27.7-9-pae.

    Is this a known bug, or is there a software configuration change that I
    could make to improve the situation? I'm currently running the
    'performance' power profile and have deselected the option under power
    management to allow powerdevil to manage screen powersaving. (It didn't
    make any difference!)

    I hope that this is resolvable, as I have lost work on 3 occasions
    now!

    Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

    Mike.

    try using a blank screensaver
    or disable it

    Thanks for the reply. However, rather than a workaround I was hoping to
    find either a solution, or confirmation that my issue is not an isolated
    case. If the latter, a bug report needs to be filed if one doesn't
    already exist.
