    Hi everybody!
    Have this problem for some time already and can't find how to resolve it.
    So, I'm having the feature on when you move your mouse to the corner of your screen it makes your display go off while the comp is still working.
    So when I do it I have the following problem from time to time: when I return back I see a screenshot of my dashboard instead of real dashboard (made, based on events on the screen, on the moment I put my screen to sleep) and I can move my mouse etc but nothing happens cause my dashboard is just a screenshot.
    Only powering it off and on again helps...
    And I've found this at the time I put it to sleep in the system log:

    Apr 19 01:27:22 local WindowServer[94]: Created shield window 0x444 for display 0x04272f00
    Apr 19 01:27:22 local WindowServer[94]: device_generate_desktop_screenshot: authw 0x0(0), shield 0x0(0)
    Apr 19 01:27:22 local WindowServer[94]: device_generate_lock_screen_screenshot: authw 0x0(0), shield 0x0(0)

    Hope that helps.
    WOuld appreciate any advice, thanks!
