How could one combine vlock -na ( package app-misc/vlock ) run as ordinary user with s2ram ( package sys-power/suspend ) so that screenlocking takes place before suspend?
When doing like su -c "s2ram" ; vlock -na then on resume nothing is locked but screen gets locked only some seconds later.

I want the screen locked immediately on resume, preferably directly before suspend. Any idea is much appreciated.

Hi

I use i3wm and I use the following key combo to lock the screen as ordinary user

Code:
bindsym $mod+l exec "xscreensaver-command --lock; sleep 1 && xset dpms force off"


the dpms stuff disables the screen backlight, it keeps otherwise turned on.
