I tried this again and was able to open a console (I used console 1).

The only thing I found so far that worked was to restart the lightdm
driver, which of course closed all my windows and reset the login to logged

I was hoping to find something would resurrect the screen without losing
all the windows.  this time it wasn't too bad, as I did the experiment when
the system had just come up from an update reboot.

It still bothers me that xscreensaver, which appears to be the default
screensaver for 16.04 (?), still can't blank and restore the screen anymore.

Still open to further input, and thanks for all the postings so far.
