When I am using the live cd or dvd, and the session locks out after I leave it for a while. When I try and use the password I have created I always get a log in failure message. I have also tried the procedure mentioned in the manual regarding a lock out.

Is your password for the user or for root? How do you have created your password?

I created the password using the sudo passwd command.

"sudo passwd" without further arguments? Then you set a root password, but for wakeup you need a password for the normal user (I think it is sidux, but whoami in a terminal will tell) if you really need one.

I solved this way:

1) Ctrl + Alt + F1
2) ~$ sudo passwd (with the creation of password)
3) ~$ su (become root)
4) # init 3
5) # init 5 && exit

and so will unlock your session when you want and as many times as you want.

I hope it's useful.

Hello.

All you need to do is create a password for the normal live user. So instead of "sudo passwd" (which sets the password for root), just "passwd" (which sets the password for the current user).
