I do not know how to deal with this issue, but basically sometimes when I lock my laptop then unlock it, no video or audio files will play. Youtube or files from my hard drive, none plays. I think it's an issue with Xorg because for one I see it taking some CPU constantly almost like it does something all the time, and second if I kill it (that logs me out) it works.
How to debug this properly? And is anyone else experiencing this?
I am using Manjaro Gnome with Nvidia (PRIME) 390xx
No I didn't try an older kernel. Do you think is the kernel and not the Nvidia proprietary drivers? As I said there is an issue with all playable files: video or audio, on my computer or online. So I have no clue what to say more than that. I rebooted after I installed the last Manjaro updates but didn't since then. This bug happened once, then all I did was to kill Xorg and that logged me out and it worked after that, until it happened again after I locked down the laptop.
Did you try different kernels if so which ones?
You have provided no details of any of your efforts to solve this in the last three months. Document fixes you've tried and post the details otherwise this is simply an empty bump which is frowned upon on the forum.
This happens very rarely so it makes it impossible to test ,this is why I am asking here maybe someone already knows what is causing this. Last time it happened was a few weeks ago. Now it also happened today. To change the kernel that may bring with it other problems and wait for weeks or more is really difficult.
