    I installed on my laptop (Dell core i3 4gb ram from 2014) Debian 10 without GUI and then installed Openbox. To suspend the system, I enter the pm-suspend command, but what I want is to suspend the system and log out without closing the programs that I am using.

    Is there any way to do that?

    I would appreciate your help

    So after suspend your system is not active, and you can not do anything with it until system wakes up. Not even log out.

    You should not hijack year old threads. And 2 sec google would have brought up many solutions without even testing...
    Anyways this comes to mind:

    killall openbox
    openbox --exit

    I have Xubuntu installed on my netbook, and also have the LXDE environment installed too. When logging in I accidentally chose "openbox" from the choose session simply logs into a blank screen. I am however able to right click and bring up a terminal window. I tried commands such as "exit" and "logout" after googling the problem, but they don't work. I need to logout and get back to the choose session screen, to choose XFCE again. Since I had that set to log in automatically, even after switching it off and on again it still goes back to the blank openbox. Any help would be appreciated!!
