Hardware Lenovo T410 with 1600*900, OS: OpenSuSE 12.3
My panel is located on the right hand side of the screen. After a reboot the panel is automatically hiding as set. If I suspend Linux (keep in RAM, not to disk), restart the notebook and login the panel remains on top of all desktops. Any change of panel settings (autohide on -> off,... ) is ignored.
I notice the same issue in Xfce 4.10 under Xubuntu 12.04. I have no reliable way to reproduce the issue, though: the panel sometimes just hangs, and then ignores any changes to the 'Autohide' checkbox.
Most likely a duplicate of this report:
It might be a duplicate.
"xfce4-panel -r" moved the panel back to auto hide. Now I found a way to prevent this problem:
- Click on the panel to button with auto hide function using the mouse
- Select the Suspend with the up and down arrows
- press enter twice to select the auto hide button and the pop-up window
The PC suspends. After a restart the panel is working again.
Playing around to find this problem I made the following observation:
It has to do with the pop-up window. If I operate the pop-up window buttons with cursor keys and space key to select it work works as expected. Selecting suspend, get the pop-up window open and press the Escape key the panel restores from the hidden position and remains on top. Also using the mouse to select one of the pop-up window buttons confuses the panel and prevents it form hiding.
Hope that helps.
Xfce 4.13 on Linux Manjaro 18.0.3 (but also occurrs on the previous 18.0.2 revision): I noticed the same issue (the panel stop to autohide), which seems to occurs randomly for me, and so I don't know the steps to reproduce this bug. Logout and re-login, or by run xfce4-panel -r, fix the issue, despite the fact that obviously is a workaround and not a real fix.
