I recently built a new desktop. The boot on the desktop is slow (2 minutes) for a mid-range build. I've never experienced a crash while using the PC including several hours of gaming. However, after idling for a couple of days, i notice my plex server is unavailable and the screensaver is frozen. I have to power off/on and sometimes the PC will only boot after several attempts. I had to repair the boot partition once to get it to boot.
I'm not sure if this is the cause of my problem, but the nvidia prime applet on my task bar is indicating that the Nvidia Prime is not setup correctly. Driver manager has nvidia-driver-390 selected... but also says that "no proprietary drivers are in use". My thought was that the nvidia drivers are proprietary.
Here are some details that may help diagnose my problem... Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
