    Hello!
    Where will I find the file to enable screen-lock while suspending? This option is not there in control centre.
    Thanks.

    I have tried changing the suspend command in ~/.icewm/preferences from
    SuspendCommand="/usr/bin/suspend"
    to
    SuspendCommand="xlock" && "/usr/bin/suspend"
    and it doesn’t work.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Normally, installing acpi-support and editing /etc/default/acpi-support with root privileges so that LOCK_SCREEN=true option is not commented ahould make it work, but there is a problem with getXuser that I don’t know how to solve.

    As a dirty fix, you could edit /usr/local/bin/desktop-session-exit and change the suspend option so it executes
    sudo pm-suspend && xlock

    This way, using the option “Logout” (or something similar) in the IceWM menu, and selecting “Suspend” option, should make it work.

    There is a problem with it that it has a lag of 1 or 2 seconds after it powers on before the screen is locked. I have no idea how to solve this roght now.

    There isn’t any file in /usr/local/bin named as desktop-session-exit.

    locate desktop-session-exit in terminal

    It works!
    But first of all I apologise. The file was there. Instead of looking inside /usr/local/bin, I was looking inside /usr/bin. Then per your instruction I changed the suspend option to ‘sudo pm-suspend && xlock’ and it works (with that lag as you said).
    Thank you a lot @Xecure !
