Repeated logins from screensaver Sep. 11th, 2005 06:48 pm
Frequently when my PB wakes from sleep, I'll give my password to the screensaver, it'll accept it, show the desktop and apps, then go straight back to the screensaver login panel, requiring me to type the password again. Occasionally it'll go right back to sleep.

Anyone familiar with this problem or have a solution? I'm fairly sure I'm not just mistyping my password; it happens far too frequently for that, and I know I'm >>95% accurate typing it in elsewhere.

PowerBook G4 12", Mac OS X 10.4.2

do you have your hotcorner defined to activate the screensaver?
I do, and that's sometime happened.

Nope, I have Dashboard, App Windows and All Windows defined, and top-left is undefined because it causes a clash between X11 and my Wacom tablet.

And one of these day's I'll remember to set the "post to" field when trying to post to a community. Surely it should be at the top of the form?

Mine does it too. There are also some interesting variations where you get the pizza wheel but no login dialog. Closing the lid and then re-opening it fixes these.

Get an ADC account (if you haven't already got one) and file a bug report for it.
