I have the Nvidia MX 150 graphics card in my Asus S15 Vivobook running Kubuntu 18.04.

After I install the Nvidia graphics driver, everything runs great except that the system does not wake up after sleep. I have tried multiple versions of the driver, from 340 up to 390, but none of these fixes the problem. I have tried all the fixes I have found on different sites, like updating grub, updating the kernel, and a few other hacks. Unfortunately nothing works. Maybe it's an issue with my MX150 graphics card.


Updating to Kubuntu 18.10 fixed the issue


You could try this:

Suspend/Hibernation If you use an old NVIDIA driver, hibernation and/or suspend may not work. Here is a potential work around:

We need to edit xorg.conf, open a terminal and enter the following command:

gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf In the section called Section "Device" add Option "NvAGP" "1", you should end up with something like this:

Section "Device" Identifier "my id" Driver "my dr" VendorName "my vendor" BoardName "my board name" Option "NvAGP" "1"

EndSection Blacklist the intel_agp module from being loaded by the kernel. This is done by editing blacklist.conf, open a terminal and type:

gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Then add the following line:

blacklist intel_agp Reboot your system.

  • Didn't get a chance to try this. Updating to kubuntu 18.10 fixed my problem. Thanks anyways. – Dr. Lector Jan 21 at 12:54
