Hi Peter,

AFAIK, the lock screen requires GDM, which currently does not work on
GuixSD [1].  For now, I use xlock to lock my screen.  If I want to lock
and suspend, I use the following rather unglamorous command:

    $ xlock & (sleep 3; loginctl suspend)

If anyone has any better advice, I would love to hear it!

Someday I would like to return to fixing GDM, but I am a bit
traumatized.  It is a very slow and frustrating package to debug.
