Very much appreciate any help here. I’ve just received a new Asus Zephyrus G14 (GA402RK) laptop and noticed immediately after installing linux, that my cursor will seemingly randomly freeze in place and then appear where it should have been after about 0.5 - 3.0 seconds.
I’ve been trying to isolate the issue to figure out what may be causing it.
Laptop is full AMD; running in balanced performance mode with hybrid graphics setting; changing these don’t seem to fix it
Appears in both KDE Plasma and Qtile environments; I’m thinking it’s not DE related
No difference between using a mouse or a trackpad
32 GB of RAM, so probably not a swap issue
No new messages in journalctl -b after freeze
Does not occur when running a continuous output program like glxgears or watching a youtube video in firefox
Sometimes, not always, I can reproduce it by sitting still in an empty desktop for 10-15 seconds and then attempting to move the cursor; if i continuously move the cursor it will freeze up at least twice per minute
alt-tabbing or typing into a terminal immediately un-freezes the cursor
I’m thinking that it may be some sort of power saving setting that I can potentially turn off. Arch wiki mentions kernel param amdgpu.runpm; setting it to 0 yielded no improvement. Next closest thing I found was the intel kernel param enable_psr from this thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=265061.
