I'm using xmonad as my window manager. There's no default hibernate/lock app by default.

I tried slock, it locked my screen; however, I don't know how to re-enter the system: there's just a black screen, and nothing works.

How can I enter the system?


To unlock slock, simply type your user password at the blank screen.

You can verify this is the process via slock's readme.
