Locked objects should be completely disabled
At the moment a locked object can still be selected, hindering the ability to select an object underneath.
It would be great if locked object would be completely disabled, similar to how an illustrator locked object behaves.
The one option that drives me up a wall is that I can't lock and object. yes, there's an option to lock an object but I don't want access to it until I unlock it. I create my grid patterns and I'm constantly fighting with my so call Locked Object. On Windows is the worst because layers option is missing.

I think having a locked object be completely disabled is a good idea. If you have a responsive grid overlaying the whole art board, and not wanted selected while you are moving objects underneath to align them to the grid.
Being able lock objects and make them non selectable is a basic layout need.
It allows you to select past an object in the stacking order or select groups of objects without selecting unintended items.
Hiding objects isn't the same you still may want to see the locked object and the roundtrip back and forth to find objects in a layers panel constantly wastes a lot of time.
I would say it's still a vaiid request.

Better than words I attach a recording of behaviour: https://jumpshare.com/v/bZFWWlclqqEgwJXejr89
I think it's not necessary to mark locked objects as selected if you are selecting multiple objects by click and drag selection. Because you cannot to manipulate with them and it makes situation confused if you have in artboard over hunderds objects.
Or is there any reason to mark locked objects as selected during multiply selection?

I would agree with this request in partial. Disabling locked layers is convenient for common selection tasks. Most often then not you would click off the selected object to deselect them, but in this instance it simply selects the locked background layer. That being said, it's also a convenient feature if you want to align an object to a locked layer.
It might be better to create a secondary option to select locked layers as it is a less common behaviour. For example you could option click a locked layer to select it if you wanted to unlock or align an object to it.
