Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.0.10-4
Followup-For: Bug #634640

Ok, apparently I'm talking in my sleep or something.  I discovered that power manager doesn't lock the screen (except for, if select, after hibernate and suspend.  That means the only alternative to the screensavers is xtralock combined with a screen locker like i3lock or slock.

For a wishlist item I would suggest that xfce4-power-manager have the ability to lock the screen when it blanks it, e.g. using i3lock, or xtrlock, or slock, so that there is an alternative to the screensavers.

Another possibility (depending on dependencies, what's pulled in as a result) would be to use gnome-screensaver rather than xscreensaver as the default (it at least doesn't have bogus DPMS).
