I upgraded from a radeon card to an EVGA GTX 770 Classified. The linux driver works great except for one problem. I have a monitor connected to the DisplayPort via a DVI converter. I have two other monitors connected via the DVI ports.
When I try to make my monitors stand by, the DVI-connected ones sleep as expected. The DisplayPort-connected one turns off for a few seconds and then flickers back to life, displaying a static image of whatever it was displaying at the time of sleep. I have tried the distribution (gentoo) provided driver package as well as the package downloaded directly from nvidia. The monitors all sleep correctly under Windows (7 or 8)
I have tried kernel 3.11.4 as well as 3.12.0. The nvidia driver versions I have tried are 325.15 and 331.20. I have also checked in nvidia-settings to see if any power setting changed anything.
I have attached the file generated from the nvidia-bug-report script, run over ssh while the other monitors were sleeping properly.
