Screen turns blank after sleep/lock

I just installed manjaro 19.0.2 (version might not be accurate but 19v) xfce . Whenever I close lid or lock screen , screen gets blank nothing works . No keystrokes, mouse nothing .
Please can someone solve this issue .

GPU :- nvidia GeForce 150mx
CPU :- i5-8250u.
RAM :- 8gb.
Model :- lenovo IdeaPad 320.

Closing a laptop lid normally causes the laptop to sleep, so the screen will go blank and it will stop responding to input - that's kind of the point.

If you don't want it to sleep when you close the lid then you can alter your DE's power settings, e.g.:

Does Ctrl+Alt+F2 still show something when that happens?

:innocent:

P.S. If you enter a bit more details in your profile, we can also see which Desktop Environment you're using, which CPU/GPU you have, without you having to repeat it in every single question you ask...

That's not the problem screen gets totally blank and nothing works. I went through many threads for issues similar to those but can't find any solution .
But Thanks for the reply :slightly_smiling_face:

I tried Ctrl+alt+f2 but nothing works I tried other keys as well. But screen gets blank usually while sleep or lock screen should get totally off but it seems that screen only getting black .

  2. Did you change the "When Laptop lid is closed" do "Do nothing" as per Jonathon's request? If yes: does it still go black when you close? If not: does it still go black when you lock?
