Screen lock takes too long to respond


Occassionally, screen lock is taking a ridiculous amount of time (>1 min) to unlock after providing the password. It is more likely to occur if I have not rebooted in a while and I have put the system into sleep/hibernate mode. These are some entries in journalctl after it finally unlocks. I don’t know if they are relevant.

F30 is no loner supported. I would recommend doing an upgrade to F32 and see if the problem continues. Lots of software updates since kernel 5.6.13.


Upgrading to F32 is strongly recommended. If the issue persists, it’s always also worth creating a clean new user to see if the issue persists (without adding extensions etc. at all).
