For quite a days now I am having this sort-of bug in elementary OS whereby If I put my laptop to lock mode for a long period (like overnight) each and every applications are closed by elementary OS. I have disabled suspend and my hardware doesn't support "halt", So I put my laptop always to lock mode.

N.B: I am using a custom kernel by Xanmod

  • Don't use a custom kernel. That's the root of your issue.

I don't know if the issue is related to the custom kernel but I had an issue like that in elementary and it was fixed by the latest updates so you can just

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade 
  • Yes my installation is upgraded to the latest releases!! May 25, 2017 at 14:36
  • can you post a log
