My screen freeze when idle for too long

I just recently reinstalled Manjaro and I’m having an issue with my GPU.

Basically, if I leave my computer alone for too long, my GPU crashes (I think)

Basically, when I come back, the screen is frozen on the “welcome” page (Win+L page). I see my drives are still writing data tho, so I don’t think it’s a full crash.

inxi output

CPU: 10-core Intel Core i9-10850K (-MT MCP-) speed/min/max: 2913/800/5200 MHz
Kernel: 5.15.81-1-MANJARO x86_64 Up: 13m Mem: 3985.2/32015.0 MiB (12.4%)
Storage: 4.09 TiB (58.9% used) Procs: 403 Shell: Zsh inxi: 3.3.23

I have an AMD RX 6600 XT sapphire GPU for reference.

I had a very similar bug on Linux Mint, and it’s one of the reason I decided to go back to manjaro… but the bug is still there… haunting me… It doesn’t do it on my Windows Install tho, so it’s a linux bug :confused:

Thanks for any help <3

provide the full inxi output:
inxi -Faz
does it happen with different kernels?

It also happened with Linux Mint 20.3
Currently using Manjaro 22.0.0

Whatever that is.
With a rolling release distro you’re either up-to-date or you’re not: threre are no (meaningful) version numbers.

That would suggest it’s not Manjaro specific but a general problem, perhaps even hardware related (same machine).

  • check your RAM
  • try other kernels
  • disable power management (altogether!)

It never really crash on Windows for idling too long tho o3o;

So maybe it’s a kernel thingy… ?

yes, try the 6.0 kernel:
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux60
reboot, and test…
if the freeze happens again, reboot and provide logs from it:
journalctl -b-1 -p4 --no-pager
