Strange Video Issue on Wake

I really am not 100% sure where this topic best fits, so if it gets moved I understand.

I recently upgraded the GPU in my system from a 2070 Super to a 3080. Everything was working fine before that time I believe. Sometimes when I wake my system from sleep, all of my desktop windows flip upside down and rightside up every second or so. The plasma bar itself is not affected although it is not responsive either. The I originally thought maybe this was a Plasma issue, but killing and restarting Plasma does not solve the problem. The only way to recover the system is to drop to a terminal session and perform a reboot from the prompt. I am running the absolute latest available kernel and Nvidia (proprietary) drivers (last system update was yesterday). I have had this issue for at least a month now.

Has anyone else seen this issue? I’m not even really sure where to look to start troubleshooting this one. The system isn’t crashing, so I doubt there is a useful log anywhere to look at.

Of course not. Nobody has exactly your system HW and SW combination. Else it would have been posted from others.
But really, nobody knows what is your system. Why don’t you uncover this secret? :upside_down_face:

It could be any one or more combined reasons for this.
You have to narrow down as many of them possible until this stops happening and then adding one by one to find some useful result.

  • Plasma, kwin, compositor, EGL setting. Disable, or change these.
  • Nvidia driver bug, or wrong setting. Re-install drivers, check upstream for similar bug and report. Try nouveau.
  • Application bug, browser addon/extension bug. What apps are open when suspending?
  • Hardware defect. Try other keyboard, mice etc.
  • Kernel bug. Try others.

Best wishes! :man_shrugging:
