Hello, I am having an issue with linux mint 14 cinnamon 64bit. I have an asus gs74sx laptop. The issue is this: whenever i wake the computer up from hibernation or sleep mode, it is frozen on a whit and black zig zag patterned screen. sometimes i can get to terminal, but not always. this last time it said that my graphical interface had failed. it asked me if i wanted to see the logs and i said yes, but of course it was all meaningless to me.
next time it happens i will write down what it says, but i was hoping to get an idea of what to look for first.
a reboot has fixed the problem every time so far.
edit: just noticed something that might be related (if it is a graphics card issue or something): sometimes the text on screen, like the bookmark names in chrome, etc. are all scribbly looking until i hover a mouse over them, which then causes them to fix themselves.
edit 2. so this is what it says when it freezes and then switches to terminal: [DRM] nouveau failed to idle channel 1
PFIFO -playlist update failed
then it switches back to the black and white frozen screen requiring a reboot.
