After locking screen

After locking my screen with Fedora 32, after a short amount of time (until my screen turns off), when I try to log in, after the screen turns on, i get a blank blue-ish screen with mouse use, and thats it.

ctrl-alt-f1 dont even work to get to a different tty, I have to hard power cycle

I found some stuff from about a year ago about some similar behavior, namely: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=244965, but none of the fixes worked, and that was apparently and issue in a gnome release 4 versions ago

Can someone help me debug this? It makes my computer hard to use…

Hi @guswynn, welcome to the community! Please take a minute to go through the introductory posts in the #start-here category. They include useful information on using the forum well.

This is odd: does the system suspend and resume from suspend, or is it just the lock screen?

I guess the first thing to do would be to collect more information. Can you please look at the logs to see if you see anything there when this happens? Any errors would be most useful:
