Wired mouse and keyboard stop working when monitor turns off

Post by Phoenix2683 » Sun Nov 11, 2018 5:06 pm

Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon
Kernel 4.19.1-041901-generic

Steelseries keyboard and mouse, both wired.

It doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes when the monitor turns off it won't wake up with the keyboard/mouse and the lights are off on both. The only way to get the computer up again is a restart.

suspend/hibernate are off, only thing on is 30 min screen shutoff.

happened again last night this time the lights on the keyboard and mouse were on, but could not wake the monitors, nothing would bring it back but a restart.
