iirc, in this and previous versions, <ctrl+alt+l> brings up screen
saver. pressing any key or moving mouse produces 'screen locked'
pop up and prompt for user password. no selections as r.s. responds
so i would say that your de is responding correctly to <ctrl+alt+l>.
as to using <SysRq> as suggested by j.z, ihni, as i do not use a vm
on this box, but i do presume he knows what he is talking about. he
seems to have in many other cases. ;-)
Please, insight, magic key codes, valium...
valium, aka, diazepam, aka, benzodiazepine.
not good. besides calming, tends to have adverse effect of
causing forgetfulness. which may cause you to use <ctrl+alt+l>
again and forget to use <SysRq> to recover.
to calm nerves, i do recommend mmj or 2mg lorazepam. ((GBWG))
