I recently bought an gaming laptop (the Gigabyte Sabre 15) with an Nvidia geforce gtx 1050. I had trouble with the graphic card during the installation of ubuntu and I had to boot with acpi=off.

Now everything is installed (including Nvidia drivers which was not as easy as usual) and i don't want my computer to boot with acpi=off anymore because it causes trouble with my keyboard and touchpad. I can disable it at start up by going into the grub and then by erasing "acpi=off" in the boot parameter, but then it works just once. And i don't want to do it at every boot.

Someone could give me a permanent solution? Thank you!


To permanently remove acpi=offfrom the GRUB options, you have to edit the file /etc/default/grub.

You'll find a line like

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=off"

or similar (the important part is GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, and obviously there should be acpi=off).

Just remove the acpi=off part (GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"), save, exit and run

sudo update-grub
