To find out which app grabbed your key you could use the debug keysym XF86LogGrabInfo; run sleep 2; xdotool key "XF86LogGrabInfo" and then immediately start pressing that particular key repeatedly, then check for output in /var/log/Xorg.log.

This is the only post I have seen mentioning this specific issue. I also had the problem with the corruption of the XFCE panel in Xubuntu 14.04 after suspending by closing the lid of my laptop. Once I opened the lid, the panel was always corrupted - often just black. The desktop looked OK but if I opened files, the various buttons to maximise etc were ...

After further searching, I found this bug report which indicates that a potential fix was added in 2012, although the issue is not considered properly resolved. In any event, the workaround ppears to be the commands: xrandr --output HDMI-1 --set underscan on xrandr --output HDMI-1 --set "underscan hborder" 54 --set "underscan vborder" 51 Obviously the ...
