I'm actually getting logged out; I have to give my username (id
est, confirm the default) and type my password every time.
Kernel.org has been working clean up power management, see
ACPI implementations have been causing problems with wake from
sleep, etc. Some vendors have firmware updates that may help.
Are all your machines the same?

I've never seen that happen.
My practice after installing every new release has been to tell
dnf first to remove mate-screensaver and then to install xscreensaver. The
latter is still working fine on the other two machines in front of me.
I've just reversed that: told dnf to install mate-screensaver and
remove xscreensaver. I found out immediately that the former doesn't let
me manage my screen in any of the ways I want.
Would it help to reboot? Could there be a problem with my KVM
Easy to test by taking KVM switch out the loop -- there have been
issues with the EDID getting corrupted on resume from sleep.
