Monitor goes into standby after update

I have the following issue right after I installed the Manjaro update that just came in. Also reported by several other users, e.g. in the laptop section.

Booted, went in to grub and changed to kernel 5.13.1-3

Now a restart ends up with my monitor going into stand-by as, I assume, my GeForce RTX 2080 Super went to sleep. the system is running though as my keybord’s leds change color as soon as the system is up (using g810-led)

A normal power-off and power-on gives no problems. Also recovering from sleep is OK. Furthermore my system is supersized, runs cool, no dust, runs way below capacity.

Googling didn’t help me to find a solution other than rebuilding my kernel, which is a no-go

This is the error I get:

(base) [rob@jaws ~]$ sudo journalctl -p 3 -xb

And also:

[rob@jaws ~]$ sudo dmesg | grep nvidia:
[    2.009792] nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel

I’ll switch back to kernel 5.12.16-1 for now.

OK, 5.12 didn’t solve the problem, a restart still results in a black sleeping screen and the same errors.
I read there were several problems with the linux-firmware package related to Manjaro randomly freezing here: System frequently crashing after GPU drivers update - #121 by Hans12
Here : Manjaro freezes several times a day
and here: System frequently crashing after GPU drivers update

Who can help? I’ll gladly file a bug report but maybe one of the guru’s here can help narrowing down the issue as it seems to affect more people.

Some system info:

Idk if it’s an update related issue or not, but if you are on an SSD, try reseating it. This happened to me a few days back, and it fixed the problem (for now).

I’ll give bot’h ssd’s a bump but I ran some diagnostics and they’re both 100% ok. Besides that, the computer has been sitting on the same spot since a year, it’s basically unmovable. All fans are clear from dust, the whole think is squeaky clean and super tight.
