  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • MEMORY: 4Gb
1. No signal when waking from suspend, but cant turn off by pressing ctrl+alt+del and then alt+d or by ctrl+alt+f2, username, password ,poweroff
2. randomly jumps between very old image (in same session) and almost instantly to the "up to date (or up to time)" image. Even jumps from fullscreen games to a image when i had file manager window open and then in less than second switches back to fullscreen game.

Is the later common software issue or is my gpu likely to be failing.

When a game and/or Wine is not running does it return from suspend normally? Are you running the game under Wine? What you're describing sounds more like a RAM reserving problem, i/e something is remaining in swap.

Today (November 6) it's struggling with libreoffice, minecraft (which is completely closed) jumped many times over libreoffice and needed to move mouse around to refresh the image to libreoffice again.

No wine used at all. 32gb of ram. 3gb of swap. nvidia geforce gtx 1050Ti.
total 64gb of storage on usb drive. I think this is why isn't suspending working
20gb in home (few gigabytes free in home)
32gb in root fs (10gb free)
3gb in swap
5gb in archive partition

Edit: Yes 32gb of storage at the "/" and 32gb of RAM

Hi,

Have you tried using the different default and nVidia drivers?

changed to proprietary recommended one from open source. It works better but still wrong old parts of image randomly appearing.

I would go back to trinidad's questions then :
"When a game and/or Wine is not running does it return from suspend normally? Are you running the game under Wine?"

Could be java, because of running from USB or maybe a problem with the video card. Also, an Entity from another time-dimension wanting to contact you via a computer frame-buffer. Everyting is theory though, ;)

No wine used at all.
After failed to blindly shutdown my computer I am even more sure it is a software issue but I think that firefox was preventing shutdown with the multiple tabs close prompt. Also when it started to happen the minecraft was completely closed.

Interesting, I have problems sometimes with FireFox and sound but I guess this could happen with video on certain setup.
Try using Chrome/Chromium only, and maybe uninstallaing FireFox if you think it could be an ingredient in the problematic.

For Minecraft, I have not used it for years and that was in Windows. Even then, it was using Java and wasn't really stable.
I guess it could be possible it leaves some process open in the background or something.

The following is coming from the noob-side ;) :
In any case, when using CTRL-ALT-F2, this usually change desktops if I'm not mistaken (I only use one so I'm not sure).
But, I think you have to enable multiple Workspaces for it to work (?) . Maybe you know more on this then me though, lol.
Edit : Typozzz

See the open programs vs the ones showing on OOPS! I dont have veracrypt download open nor the veracrypt file manager window. Also the linux file manager in the backround should be open (in ram), but not visible. Believe or not but the fact is only vm names have been removed with gimp for anti advertising, nothong other have been edited.

Well at lest, since you were able to screen capture the bug. This would indicate thats it's not a hardware issue. ;)
Things I would try :
Turning OFF swap.
Reboot the PC (not log off or suspend, a full reboot)
Uninstall FireFox (or at least not opening it after the reboot) and try using Chromium or Google Chrome as default for testing.
Create and use a different user profile. (this coming from the Windows world where user profiles get corrupted frequently ;) ).

If these fail, you will need to buy a live goat and some white chalk sticks and prepare a special ritual. I don't have the specifics steps for this though. ;)
