Summary0006134: Display Sleep Sooner Than Screensaver Idle Timeout Causes System Hang
DescriptionThis is a re-post of Issue No. 0006025, but with a correct (updated) severity set (to "crash" versus "minor").

In an effort to get the display to sleep, using the GUI, I set the Power Management Preferences -> Display inactivity period to a value less than the Screensaver idle timeout which, indeed, caused the display to sleep. Attempting to regain control of the system, by moving the mouse or entering keystrokes, was impossible without using the power switch (system crash).
Steps To ReproduceUsing the GUI, set the Screensaver idle timeout to 30 minutes, then set the Power Management Preferences -> Display inactivity period to a value of 5 minutes. Wait for 30 minutes to pass, and observe black screen. Wait another 5 minutes, and then attempt to regain control of the system.

It appears that this bug is related to a Screesaver timeout, with "lock screen" checked, happening AFTER the Power Management Display Timer has expired.
Additional InformationTest cases as follows (PASSED=able to regain system control, FAILED=had to use
power-off switch to reboot):

1. Set Screensaver timeout to 2 minutes, set Power Mgmnt Display timeout to 5
minutes, wait 6 minutes, then hit shift key. PASSED.

2. Leave Screensaver timeout at 2 minutes, set Power Mgmnt Display timeout to 1
minute, wait 1.5 minutes, then hit shift key. PASSED.

3. Leave Screensaver timeout at 2 minutes, leave Power Mgmnt Display timeout to 1 minute, wait 3.5 minutes, then hit shift key. FAILED.

4. Leave Screensaver timeout at 2 minutes, set Power Mgmnt Display timeout back to 5 minutes, wait 6 minutes, then hit shift key. PASSED.
