Package: xfce4
Version: 4.10.1
Severity: important

I recently decided to try xfce4 on a laptop running jessie

When I close the lid, the laptop goes to sleep

When I open it, the laptop awakes and the desktop appears, the screen is
not locked

With the GNOME 3 desktop, closing the lid automatically locks the
screen, so it seems like a good idea for other window managers to
replicate this behavior so users don't get caught out by surprise.
