I am running into an issue with my NVIDIA GPU on linux, it seems when my computer is put to sleep for a long period of time, some functionality breaks, I’ll provide some examples of this that comes to mind.
I run the KDE plasma desktop environment, when I put my computer to sleep, typically overnight and bring it back up, sometimes NVENC encoding will no longer work in OBS.
When starting up certain applications (has been especially noticed when starting up Counter-strike: Global Offensive and Counter-strike: Source) the window manager freezes as well as the KDE toolbar, unable to open new applications or interact with any part of the window manager, only being able to alt-tab between existing applications for a long period of time even after such applications have been closed.
Sometimes because of this, my microphone will also stop working until the window manager restarts itself or I reboot.
I have also opened a bug report with the KDE developers and they confirmed this is happening due to an NVIDIA.
I cannot link this bug report because as a new user here I am not allowed to post more than one link. If you’d like me to link it let me know.
below I have attached the output from running
