Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-screensaver (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

I have set the password protection on from the screensaver options. This
causes the screen to lock when suspending or hibernating the machine.

When the machine is powered on again, I am greeted with the lock screen
which asks for my password. If I start to type my password I get the
time out -message and the password is rejected.

Seems like the timing starts from the moment the machine starts entering
power-saving mode. Could it be changed so it starts when it has resumed?
