Ubuntu – How to lock the screen after resuming from hibernation


I've been able to successfully hibernate and resume my Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop PC using procedure that I've documented in this answer. However, I now have a problem that whenever the PC resumes, it does not locks the screen.

How can I lock the screen after the system resumes back from hibernation?

  • I have added an alias into ~/.bashrc file

    alias hibernate='sudo echo "Hibernating..."; gnome-screensaver-command -l; sudo pm-hibernate;'

    So that it locks the screen before hibernating.
