Version: 3.2.0-2+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * I suspended my pc with nvidia drivers (295.20) from the non-free repo and
it suspends and restrores correctly, but there is no screen saver or password
dialog box when i resume making the system insecure
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
                I don't know what to try to fix this
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
                I expdected to sustend gnome 3 and on resume there be a screen
saver with a password box not direct access to my desktop

I don't know how to debug this but if you tell me I am more then willing to get
any infomation
