System lags after display turned deactivated

Hi!
I just did a fresh install of EndeavourOS with XFce on a laptop with hybrid GPUs (nvidia - intel).
When connected to a monitor (144Hz) via min displayport it works fine but as soon I deactivate my laptop screen (244Hz) using Arandr or the display utility, the system gets way too laggy. Then I activate that display again, the system gets back to normal.
Using top I see nothing weird or CPU, RAM spikes.

It sounds a lot like this:

Welcome to :enos: forums.

It would be great if you can include more details about the system. Please run the below command in your system’s terminal and post the link that it shows here.

inxi -Fxxc0z --no-host | eos-sendlog

@jonathon I just installed that library from the AUR and started the service but the problem persist when the laptop screen is deactivated

Thanks @s4ndm4n

Did you restart the machine after installing and enabling the service? If not just give it a quick restart and see if it’s still the same.

Yes, I tried both without restart and after restarting the system but the problem persist.
Here is the status of the service if that can help:
