Assuming the attacker grabs my laptop while the screen is locked, it would be
nice to know that the wallet is closed and hence nothing can be extracted from
So, disabling auto-close-on-lock would severely degrade security.
Auto-open-wallet-on-screen-unlock OTOH does not degrade security as both the
screen lock and the walltet are protected by the same password.
So, I think there is quite an obvious use-case for this and it would
significantly increase security, in particular when the laptop is hardly ever
turned off so all the time "at rest" is spent in suspend.
