I have been using Parrot OS on a daily basis and every day it ‘flips’ and returns to locked screen.
First I believed this was because of issues with openvpn to tryhackme/htb. But today the same issue without being connected over vpn.

- Did you try searching info about this issue on search engine?
### 4. How did you get this error? Are there any steps to procedure it?
It doesn’t output an error. After period of time my screens freezes, but my mouse pointer is still operational. Can’t click or do anything and after estimate minute or 2 tops, the systems flips to login screen.
I log back in and no windows are open. restart browsers and then they suggest to reload the pages I was using before the ‘flip’. Today I didn’t use my openvpn and tried other browsers → same effect
Usually I have firefox open to tryhackme/htb and chromium for music/search.
### 5. Error log or screenshot No error to show. The system freezes, but mouse pointer is still operational (music keeps playing on youtube) Then it feels like a forced lock screen -> Log back in and continue my work. I happens every day, but apparently only once. ### 6. If you have any idea or suggestion about this issue please tell us Mu suggestion is the OS. Seems the system loses track of something and "resets" it back. I can try to provide samples if I could get some help with the commands to use and where to use them. I do have a small issue with upgrade. But I have seen other post about this topic on the forum.
