Zorin OS Lite freezes when the laptop's lid is re-opened

I am using Zorin OS Lite. One thing I have noticed is that the screen freezes when I am re-opening the lid of my laptop. Sometimes the mouse pointer works but it is not able to click anywhere, it is able to move on the screen.
Can anyone please help me with this?

Try this:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-input-all

Tell me if it works or not

Tried it but it also didn't solve the problem.

You may need to edit grub config and restart

edit grub config by entering

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

then replace whats in "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="

to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash button.lid_init_state=open"

Exit and save. then Reboot tell me if it worked or not.

:cry: still freezing

This may be caused by the screensaver application lockscreen interfering with the Suspend Function.
Try going into the Power Manager and disabling the Lockscreen entirely, then testing if the problem persists. Alternatively, you can

sudo apt remove --purge xfce4-screensaver

and see if removing the screensaver removes the interference.
This will, as a consequence, disable the ctrl+alt+l lock ability.
