Everything worked fine until yesterday :) I use a mini-DP to connect to my screen for over a year now. Now, when I connect the cable it recognizes it (so I see the Ubuntu background in the screen and can work in my laptop) but when I close the lid or set the monitor as the main screen (so as to work only from the monitor screen as I have been doing), the whole system freezes. Removing the cable does nothing. Only hard reboot (pressing continuously the power button) brings it up.
18.04.1 LTS (Bionic).
I cannot get anything from
dmesg because of the freeze, but some errors from
/var/log/syslog that maybe can help:

Anyone else with the same problem? What do I have to do if this is a general issue to let Ubuntu developers know about it?
