Screen freeze for Linux Mint 18.3

Post by Huo_Qu_Bing »

Hi all,

I am using a Asus laptop for Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia. Cinnamon.
I have issues with my screen freezes randomly in the midst of browsing the net. This usually occur after I resume my window sessions from suspend(sleep) mode.(I frequently suspend my laptop more than 3 times without undergoing restart or shut down). Hence I will need to manual shut down my laptop.
