I noticed that if I leave QuickTime open in fullscreen and then my screen is locked, I have no way to unlock it:

  • Screen is completely black but for the mouse cursor.
  • I can move the mouse across the screen and the attached external monitor.
  • Both the external keyboard and the laptop one have no other effect than to make the system beep by each keystroke.

Is there a better way than to force power off the machine to unlock it?

  • Had similar issues until I updated my OS to 10.11.3. Tried updating the OS and regular disk aid trick ? – pun Jan 25 '16 at 4:01
