Only system command with no response is "Lock"


Recommended Posts

First, I have reviewed this thread - which did not provide a solution.    Second, I have checked and specifically enabled all system permissions for Alfred (General > Request Permissions) - and rebooted.


I am using Alfred 4.3 from the website, with the power pack, running on macOS 11.1.


All system commands work in Alfred (screen saver, show trash, log out, sleep, restart, shutdown, etc.) - with the exception of "Lock" which does nothing at all.


If anyone has a solution to the problem it would be much appreciated. I don't think I'm overlooking anything obvious and so wasting your time: I hope not!

I believe Alfred's lock feature works by simulating the default system hotkey. Check that you haven't assigned that hotkey to something else.

Thanks for the idea. However, I have checked and ⌘ + ⌃ + Q is not mapped to anything else (and does indeed work to show the lock screen when I use it).
