Pinephone BE keeps locking itself when unplugged
Got the PinePhone BE yesterday and have a very annoying issue.
All of a sudden it started locking it self down after a few seconds of unplugging the charger.

It then shows the lock screen. If you enter the pin it will work for a few seconds and then the same happens again.
If plugging it in, the phone keeps working just fine.

For now i could only fix it by simply removing the lock screen command:

sudo mv /usr/lib/kscreenlocker_greet /usr/lib/kscreenlocker_greet.bak

But why is this happening???


After the file was renamed the keyboard still kept dissapearing.
Since i saw the post right below this one was "not to use the Display section of Settings" and that was exactly what i had done to increase the timeout.

I have since fixed this issue by performing the file changes of and then renamed the kscreenlocker_greet file back to its original name.
