I have a problem that also affects more than 10 (and I suspect even more) acer laptops.
I own the specific model acer E5-573g-54R0, but all veriants of acer e5-573 are affected, and even acer e1-571.
Problem can be reproduced using ANY supported linux kernel and drivers.
I tested about 10 distros: ubuntu 15.05, 15.10, 16.04, 16.10, archlinux, manjaro, fedora, apricity, elementary os all of these distros are affected by the problem.
There is not a single working driver version. No metter when I grab drivers: official repos or nvidia download page, the problem is still there, no matter what.
I have created an issue on the customer support: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/account/questions/detail/i_id/1069886 I’ll copy here the issue description:
when a shutdown command is given, or restart, or hybernate, or I close the screen, or the screen shutdown due to inctivity of the laptop the computer enters an “almost-dead” state. That state is not a complete shutdown. It has power-led on, electricity flows across components, but the screen is off.
From that state I cannot restore the laptop to a working status. I have to long-press the shutdown button and than restart.
I cannot generate the log using the nvidia utility because the system is in a non-reposive status, and I’m unable to login from ssh.
I have two notes: drivers are working “well” I can use cuda as both developer and final user. I can use opengl 4.5 and performance are really good. I cannot use bumblebee/noveau so I really need your help!
I have generated several system reports, those are attached on the issue linked before, but I can attach them on request.
