Ok, we might have jumped the gun on LightLocker there as we tested some
more between Battery and AC power.(still definately related)
But the consistent issue is that whenever we come out of suspend, and
unlock the screen it goes blank and the computer needs to be restarted.
This was tested on a few different laptops of different age and model.
@Pjotr - not really what we're looking for here as we're able to get around
it by disabling settings in the GUI, and Suspend wasn't the real issue, but
the screen being locked. Also disabling something isn't a fix. Espessially
via the terminal.
Just hoping to be helpful in that the default setting cause Xubuntu to
crash if you simply close your laptop lid which people generally do.
