Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.2.0-5
Severity: important

xfce4-power-manager ignores all settings. It won't lock the screen on
suspend/hibernate nor hibernate when the battery is critical.
The power information plugin in the panel doesn't update the status
either so I need to have the box plugged or constantly check the
remaining battery to avoid losing my work.

$ xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -l -v

/xfce4-power-manager/critical-power-action          2
/xfce4-power-manager/lid-action-on-battery          1
/xfce4-power-manager/lock-screen-suspend-hibernate  true
/xfce4-power-manager/power-button-action            3

$ xfce4-power-manager --dump:
