       i3lock - slightly improved version of slock


       i3lock [-v] [-n] [-b] [-d]


       i3lock  locks your screen by making it white. To quit i3lock just enter
       your password.


       i3lock improves slock by making it fork() and therefore combinable with
       commands to suspend your computer. Additionally, instead of turning off
       your screen via DPMS and/or displaying a black screen, i3lock  displays
       a  white  screen  so you can see if your computer failed to resume from
       suspend or if your screen is just locked. Also, when entering  a  wrong
       password,  i3lock  does  not  call  XBell().  This is important because
       i3lock/slock  think  you’ve  entered  a  password  when  resuming  from
       suspend, at least sometimes.

       Since version 1.0, i3lock supports PAM.


       -v, --version
              Display the version of your i3lock

       -n, --nofork
              Don’t fork after starting.

       -b, --beep
              Enable  beeping.  Be  sure  to not do this when you are about to
              annoy other people, like when opening your laptop  in  a  boring

       -d, --dpms
              Enable  turning  off your screen using DPMS. Note that, when you
              do not specify this option, DPMS will turn off your screen after
              15 minutes of inactivity anyways (if you did not disable this in
              your X server).
