Session drops on screen lock

asked 2019-04-22 15:53:14 -0600

I've just switched from Ubuntu 18.04 to Fedora 29 (default GNOME) and I'm encountering strange issue with screen lock. I've googled extensively, but didn't find any relevant info that would help me.

TL;DR On Fedora 29 locking screen drops user session.

I'm using a notebook (Xiaomi Notebook Air 12.5). Here's how it worked in Ubuntu:

  1. I lock screen by clicking a lock icon in upper right menu or by closing the notebook.
  2. I make screen turn on by opening notebook or pushing any keyboard button.
  3. I see a lock screen with time and notifications.
  4. I can swype up to see a prompt to enter my password (or just start typing and lock screen with my wallpapers swypes up automatically). I enter password,
  5. GNOME is started and ALL MY APPS ARE IN SAME STATE THAT WAS BEFORE SCREEN LOCK.

On Fedora:

  1. Same
  2. Same
  3. I don't see a lock screen with clock and notifications. I see a prompt to select a user (a single one in my case), as if I've rebooted my machine.
  4. I select a user and type in password.
  5. GNOME is started blank. I mean NO APPLICATIONS ARE RUN. So, it's fresh, like after reboot.

I guess locking screen drops user session (exits user).

How do I make my brand new Fedora 29 screen locking work properly? Obviously, locking screen shouldn't quit user session (and close all applications in the process).

Thanks.
