I'm having an issue when I'm running the proprietary nvidia drivers for my ASUS laptop running ubuntu 14.04. The display freezes periodically (about once every few minutes). I know the system is still running though because I can hear my music still playing, and closing and opening the lid unfreezes the display.
Additionally the problem goes away when I switch to the open source video drivers.
Anyone have a similar experience or know of a solution?
