I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and nvidia-340. With the nvidia drivers enable I cannot recover from suspend. I can recover from suspend when I switch to intel driver or if I use nouveau drivers.

I tried to update the kernel but didn't solve the issue.

Any way to solve this with the nvidia proprietary drivers?

If not, will I loose a lot of performance by using the nouveau drivers instead of proprietary nvidia ?


Suspend/Hibernate/Resume is customizable to add special handling for your graphics card through the pm-utils (utilities and scripts for power management) package. Read the man pages for pm-action, pm-powersave, pm-is-supported, pm-suspend-hybrid, pm-hibernate, pm-suspend, and read the files in /usr/share/doc/pm-utils/.

  • I follow your advice but didn't find anything that help. I believe the problem should be between the kernel and nvidia drivers. Maybee there is a new driver somewhere that solves the issue ? ppa or something ? – João Pereira Dec 22 '16 at 21:15
  • Idk, but if you find some command line magic to fix your card, it is pm-utils where it goes, and pm-utils is what stops/restarts it now – waltinator Dec 22 '16 at 21:30
